We wanted to express our sincere gratitude towards the 100 Mile House Fire Department, ambulance services, hospital staff and the Williams Lake Cariboo Memorial Emergency and intensive care unit staff and surgeon Dr. Dan Brosseuk.

On Feb. 21, 2014 we were ice fishing on Lac La Hache Lake when our friend (son) Nick Caminiti went to pick up others in our party on a skidoo to transport them from the cabin to our fishing holes. Nick veered off the pathway in the centre of the lake to hit some fresh snow near the Lac La Hache Provincial Park.

The skidoo hit a picnic table that was covered by snow and he lay helpless for approximately two hours until Ralph Mulder and Brad Stark found him near dusk. Nick severed a blood vessel to his heart, ruptured and lost his right kidney and perforated his liver. However, he is recovering in Williams Lake Cariboo Memorial Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery thanks to everyone’s actions.

From the bottom of our hearts. God bless everyone involved in this miracle.

Love the Browns, Mulders and Sampsons of Langley, Gillespies of 100 Mile House, Starks of Kelowna, Morans and Caminitis of Abbotsford and Chilliwack.
