A motorcycle crash victim is helped by the Edmonton Huskies football team on a Saskatchewan highway

It’s a matter of staying in the correct spot at the right time. Members of the Edmonton Huskies younger football team sprung into force Sunday night when their bus came upon the scene of a motorcycle wreck in Saskatchewan.

According to the local fire department, the motorcycle had crashed with a deer just before 6 p.m. We were drawing up about 4 kilometres east of Borden on Highway 16n; it looked a little chaotic. There were people already attempting to assist,” Huskies general director Jason Lorrimer reported News on Monday.

Lorrimer stated he questioned his athletic therapists if they would assist out at the scene “And they replied, ‘absolutely.'”

The team lived for the five-hour drive home on the Yellowhead after spending 33-31 to the Saskatoon Hilltops in the Prairie Football Conference round. Sheldon McNabb, a protective back for the Huskies, stated that a number of the players had just begun playing video games when they reached the scene.

“I saw that the coaches were going out,” McNabb stated, adding he’s been thinking to become a paramedic and has remarkable practicum experience.

“I assumed that with travelling to school for it, (I would attempt to) help in any approach I could,” he stated, adding he seized blankets to keep the victim warm. “He was thankful.”

Huskies athletic therapist Randy Kuefler stated when he first proposed the victim, and he said him what training he held and that he would like to assist — something all people with first aid education are supposed to do.

“We simply wanted them to be taken supervision of,” he stated.

Kuefler stated when firefighters came; they requested he remains with them till a STARS Air Ambulance helicopter landed to airlift the victim to the clinic.

“Having other qualified medical people is especially good,” Borden Fire and Rescue chief Jamie Brandrick stated. “I requested them if they would wait.”
