When dealing with the victim, Erickson was unable to recognize who it was due to the extreme severity of the injuries.. It was not until she arrived at her house that she was searched for by Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCPM) officers, who informed him that the deceased patient was Montana, his 17-year-old daughter.
On Tuesday afternoon, the paramedic decided to share her pain with the press by pointing out that “his daughter was successful in everything she set out to do and a keen swimmer who wanted to be a lawyer.” “She was a fighter and she fought until the day she died, and she was beautiful. She was so beautiful”lament.
From the fire station in Airdrie, and accompanied by relatives, paramedics, police officers and firefighters, the mother broke down in tears several times. To the point where Richard Reed, a close friend of the paramedic and who witnessed what happened, lost his composure several times as she spoke.
Reed revealed that the driver managed to get out of the car, but that the passenger was trapped with serious injuries. “Erickson was the first person to arrive at the scene,” he said. And he asserted that she knew that the young woman was in danger, even though she was urgently transferred to a hospital to treat her.
“On the way back, he expressed his grief and frustration to his companions, knowing that a family had likely lost a daughter, sister, and granddaughter. Shortly after arriving at his house, there was a knock on the door. It was the Royal Canadian Mounted Police,” Reed said below.
“Upon entering the room, to his horror, he learned that the young woman with whom he sat in the back of the vehicle to keep her alive so the family could say goodbye, and who due to the severity of her injuries was unrecognizable, was her own daughter, he added. “Without knowing it, kept his own daughter alive”, he said to close.
