Letters to the Editor

Three young men are heroes to one Langley family

Editor: The Weghsteen family would like to express our soulfelt appreciation to the following young men: Mr. Kris Jacobson, Mr. Byron Simon and Mr. Ryley Patterson, for saving Dean Weghsteen’s life with their swift action in performing CPR after Dean collapsed from cardiac arrest.

It has been brought to our attention repeatedly at the Royal Columbian Hospital that if it were not for these three young men and their immediate action, Dean would not have survived.

Words do not seem adequate for what we are feeling, but our souls will be forever grateful to you young men — to you our heroes.

We would also like to thank the Langley Fire Department, paramedics and RCMP for your life-saving response.

God bless all of you — always.

The Weghsteen family,
