A busy Wednesday night for rescuers on the North Shore Mountains, where crews were called out to two separate incidents.
North Shore Rescue Team Leader Mike Danks says the first, on the Grouse Grind, involved a man in his 50’s who’d had a heart attack at around 8:30.
“We long lined in a physician, nurse, and two of our long line rescue technicians with the autopulse device. In conjunction with BC Ambulance and the fire department he has been brought off the hill now and delivered back in BC ambulance.”
North Vancouver RCMP have confirmed the man died after being transported to ambulance.
Shortly after, District of North Vancouver Firefighters were called to a trail rescue on Mount Seymour at the Empress and Old Buck trails.
It’s not clear yet what was the cause of that call out.
CKNW has reached out for more information, and have not yet received a response.
