Thank you for the best Christmas gift this year

A big thanks to the driver that was behind her, whom I was told was an emergency medical technician who was off-duty and stopped to assist.

On behalf of my husband and I, we want to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to all the first responders and emergency personnel that came to the aid of our daughter Dayna after a very serious car accident in the late afternoon on Saturday, Dec. 15.

She was on her way to the Superstore in Langley and driving up 192 Street just past 32 Avenue when she hit a pothole filled with water, lost control of the car, and rolled into the ditch.

The events leading up to the crash were bad weather conditions and a darkly lit street.

A big thanks to the driver that was behind her, whom I was told was an emergency medical technician who was off-duty and stopped to assist on the scene.

We also want to thank RCMP Const. Eric Wilson, who contacted me by phone while on the scene and acted in a very professional and compassionate manner as I was starting to panic. He kept reassuring me that our daughter was in the best of medical care.

We give sincere thanks to all the medical staff at Royal Columbia Hospital in New Westminster for the excellent medical care for our daughter.

Our best Christmas gift this year is that Dayna is alive, healthy and did not sustain serious bodily injury.

We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the best wishes for 2013.

 

Linda and Peter Ypenburg
