A person trapped by their vehicle for almost 16 hours was rescued by a member of the Anarchist Mountain Volunteer Fire Department.
Just before noon on Sunday (Oct. 22) one of the fire department members was out for a walk with his wife on Blacktail Road near Highway 3 when they heard what they thought was a “goat bleating.”
Upon further investigation, the member found a car had left the highway and was lying upside down in a ravine and the a cry for help was coming from inside the vehicle.
First responders found the driver of the vehicle lying close to the car and administered first aid and prepared the person for transport to hospital by the B.C. Ambulance Service.
The fire department said the driver told them the accident had happened at 8 p.m. on Saturday (Oct. 21).
