BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) regional manager Sheree Haydu (far left) and unit chief Cheryl Jensen (second from right) stand with Jakob Thornton (second from left) and Nolan Johnson (far right) after the two teens received Good Samaritan Awards for their role in the rescue of Paul Jones, a 90-year-old man who they discovered trapped in his SUV on the side of a logging Road in Pender Harbour last October. Jones, who has fully recovered from the three-day ordeal, also attended the ceremony. The BCEHS Good Samaritan Award recognizes bystanders for responding immediately in emergency situations and providing caring and humanitarian support before medical help arrives. Last October, Powell River-Sunshine Coast MLA Nicholas Simons thanked them in the Legislative Assembly.
