A special thank you

I would like to take my 'gloves off' to the Hope Search and Rescue Team

I would like to take my ‘gloves off’ to the Hope Search and Rescue Team. On the night of Nov. 12 they helped paramedics save the life of a young man whose vehicle had been hit on the Trans Canada Highway, north of Boston Bar and across from the Canyon Alpine.

While paramedics were performing life saving CPR and defibrillating the patient, they very delicately and with extreme precision, cut him out of his vehicle.

Thanks also to paramedic Mike Henderson for his triage skills at the scene, Boston Bar RCMP, Boston Bar Volunteer Fire Department and Emil Anderson Highways department.
