Lethbridge Man Receives Bronze Medal For Bravery For Role In Saving Child

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A Lethbridge man and his brother were recognized this week in Edmonton with the Bronze Medal for Bravery, after they helped save a 5-year old boy from a submerged vehicle last summer.

 

August 3rd, John Chapman and his brother Mark were fishing on Whiteswan Lake in BC, when a vehicle plunged into the water. The female driver and her 16-year old daughter escaped the vehicle and made it to the shore, where they started screaming that a child was still inside.

 

The brothers immediately went to the child's aid, with John opening the back hatch and pulling out numerous items blocking them from getting to the boy, at which point he had to surface and Mark took over. After several minutes and another having to cut the seat belt, Mark surfaced with the child and took him to shore where others performed CPR.

 

John spoke to Country 95 News, talking about how the incident has changed him, "I've got more of a positive attitude now, I used to get angry and get upset at people, now nothing can get me upset. You know, you only live one day at a time right, you never know when your number's up."

 

John noted that he did follow up with police, and learned that the young boy had made a significant recovery after only a day in hospital.
