Lives were saved by a helicopter crew. After saving a Lennox Island man from Malpeque Bay, the crew of a Canadian Forces rescue helicopter out of Greenwood, N.S. saved a woman from choking at the Summerside restaurant.
On the right place
According to Maj.Amber Bineau, spokeswoman for Joint Task Force Atlantic, she confirmed to theJournal Pioneer that after the helicopter crew stood down from its rescue mission where a man fell out of his dory and later removed from the water,they landed their aircraft in Summerside to eat a local restaurant.
While the crew was eating, a woman at another table was choking on her food and one of the “search and rescue technicians” (SAR) delivered first aid.
The same SAR technician was involved in both the water rescue and the one who performed first aid to the restaurant customer.
