VIDEO: Driver rescued from vehicle after section of Coal Harbour Road partially floods

The driver was not injured.

Poor weather conditions caused Port Hardy Fire Rescue to jump into action this morning.

At about 7:20 a.m. the fire department “received a page for a person trapped in a vehicle along the Coal Harbour road due to flooding,” stated Information Officer Adam Harding when asked to comment. “Our command truck and two rescue trucks responded and found a vehicle in the ditch along a section of partially flooded roadway.”

The patient was already out of the vehicle and in the care of BC Emergency Health Services who were on scene with Mainroad.

“We confirmed [there were] no other involved patients, and left the scene in the care of Mainroad and RCMP. The patient was not injured,” noted Harding.
