Lynn Canyon rescues part of the busy day for the North Coast crews



Firefighters from North Vancouver County were on Sundays busy with three separate rescue operations within their jurisdiction.

The most significant call was in the Lynn Canyon Bridge, where a young woman was injured and could not swim.

"We had a person who decided to try to jump a little from the cliff, which is a very, very dangerous activity, as we all know," said Kit Little, acting assistant chief of department.

"I'm not sure how she came to where she was," Little said. "He hurt his ankle, he was not able to swim." Luckily, he grabbed the ladder that had been set up to prevent people from coming out of the water. "She stood there as we set her up."

Three emergency sites reacted to the scene, but the woman suffered fewer injuries.

The kid said the rescue was going very fast.

"We've probably been one of our best rescue ever," he said. "The guys were right, really fast."

Soon after Lynn Canyon rescue, the crews were called again, this time to save cyclists from Mount Frommeu. This rescue was the third day.
