A Calgary reverend is praising two teens who rescued a local family from a B.C. lake after their vehicle apparently veered off the road and into the water.
Rev. Dean Houghton said Bob and Anne Coul and their two adult daughters, Nancy Rowan and Patricia Wicks, who are all recovering in B.C. hospitals, were plucked from icy Griffin Lake near Revelstoke, B.C., on Monday.
“Those two boys did an amazing thing, and the two nice young men even went and visited the daughters in the hospital yesterday,” Houghton told Metro.
Houghton said the family was actively involved in St. George’s Anglican Church in Calgary’s northeast, which is now rallying behind the family.
“We’re just trying to coordinate care for the daughters when they return,” he said, adding Anne needs surgery on her arm and Bob hasn’t been able to speak yet. “I have been told they are stable but that’s all I know.”
