Rescuer shares her story
A 1996 Pontiac Bonneville was carrying five young people, ranging in age from 12 to 17, when it crashed early Tuesday night. All five were taken to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks; the critically injured boy later was airlifted to a Fargo hospital. A 17-year-old girl in the car was not injured, and three others suffered injuries that were not life threatening.
Emergency personnel responded to what they say is one of the saddest accident scenes they’ve been to lately. An elderly Nevis resident suffered an apparent heart attack as he was heading north out of town on County Road 2. He appeared to have died instantly, ambulance personnel said. The victim’s dog, which appeared to be a white shepherd, kept vigil over his master, even after crews arrived on scene. The dog wouldn’t let emergency personnel get his master out of the driver’s seat until the victim’s friends stepped in to help.
