An Okanagan man’s act of bravery failed to save the life of the young woman in crisis he came upon Thursday afternoon, although it did prevent further casualties.
“A complainant saw a vehicle travelling at a very slow speed, scraping along the barricade eastbound on Highway 97 C near Brenda Mines,” said Const. Kris Clark.
“The complainant sped ahead, jumped out of his vehicle, stopped the car and observed a female driver appearing to have a seizure.”
Emergency services were called to the scene, and paramedics transported the 26-year-old Penticton woman to Kelowna hospital. She had died upon arrival and could not be revived.
Coroners are investigating the death.
