Two peo­ple fall into Coat­i­cook Gorge

Stanstead Journal - - AROUND TOWN -

Last week, two peo­ple fell into the Coat­i­cook River Gorge, on two sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions. The first to fall was a man work­ing at the dam be­hind the old Beld­ing-Cor­ti­celli plant. He lost his foot­ing while mov­ing his lad­der, how­ever, luck­ily, he was wear­ing a safety harness. A passer-by along with three other work­ers helped him get out of the dam. The fifty year-old man was taken by am­bu­lance to the Coat­i­cook hos­pi­tal to check for in­juries.

The sec­ond vic­tim, a teenage girl, was not as lucky when she lost her foot­ing while walk­ing with friends in the park­ing lot of Water­ville TG. She fell ten me­tres onto rocks and was then res­cued by Coat­i­cook fire­fight­ers and taken by am­bu­lance to the CHUS.
