MHA questions search response for injured snowmobiler

[ Back ]

Posted by web-chief on Feb 23, 2012 @ 8:05AM

The Flower's Cove man, who was injured on Sunday, was taken on a toboggan for more than 30 kilometres to an ambulance.

With high winds and snow, the weather was too poor for a search and rescue helicopter to fly - although Chris Mitchelmore, the NDP representative for The Straits-White Bay North, has questioned whether more could have been done.
