Two people fall into Coaticook Gorge
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.
