Letters to the Editor

Heros deserve highest praise

Editor:

We wish to express our gratitude for the extraordinary presence and gallantry shown by three young men in saving the life of our eldest son, Dominic Weghsteen.

On Saturday, Nov. 5, Dominic was working in the home of Chris Jacobson when he suffered cardiac arrest and collapsed.

Chris, 25, and two companions, Ryley Patterson and Bryan Fimon, immediately called 911 and then took turns performing energetic CPR on Dominic until paramedics arrived.

These three young men deserve the highest praise and commendation for their decisive, selfless and swift action.

Joanne & Robert Weghsteen, Surrey
