Two rescued after truck plunges into Harrison Lake

One person taken by air ambulance after truck leaves Rockwell Drive and crashes into lake



One person was taken by air ambulance to hospital Friday afternoon near Harrison Hot Springs, after a vehicle carrying two people crashed into the lake.

A white 4×4 pick up truck drove off Rockwell Drive, down a steep embankment and into a shallow portion of Harrison Lake, several kilometres from the Village.

Rescue workers, including police, fire and ambulance crews, worked together to carry the occupants to the road, one on a stretcher. An air ambulance landing area was set up at a nearby beach and the Harrison Hot Springs elementary school.

Kent Harrison Search and Rescue was also called to the scene.
