I am a physician from Mission, and would like to use your newspaper to thank all the people involved in rescuing me from Mount McKee after a mountain biking accident on Nov. 28.

My sincere thanks would go to the Abbotsford Police Department, Search and Rescue, B.C. Ambulance, Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service,the 911 dispatcher. and not forgetting the flight paramedic who gave me some good drugs, ensuring I have no memory of my first helicopter ride!

I am now home following reconstuctve surgery for a broken neck, and my family and I are very grateful for your help in delaying funeral arrangements for a few more years!

Thanks again. guys.

You were all very professional, caring and had a good sense of humour.

Andrew Johnson
