At 5h30 pm last night a city worker was rescued by SIM fire and rescue crews after his small front end loader broke the ice and sunk half way into the frigid waters. The dramatic rescue unfolded at the boat ramp at the end of Cartier Ave, south of Chemin du Bord-du-Lac in the Pointe-Claire borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is believed that the driver of the snow-plowing vehicle was clearing snow off of the boat ramp at Bourgeau Park. The patient initially self-extricated from the driver cabin to take shelter on the roof of the small vehicle. At least 15 long minutes lasted between the moment the 911 call was placed and the moment he was rescued. During that time, he remained exposed to winds and extremely cold temperatures measured at about -20C (-4F) reaching under -30C (-22F) with windchill. Footage in the early parts of this video shows the victim trapped on the roof of the cabin trying to cover himself with what seems to be a blanket floating in the wind. With every minute counting, ice rescue crews and firemen used the ladder of a firetruck to pull and bring him back to shore. The man was assessed inside an awaiting ambulance and showed signs of hypothermia. He luckily didn't suffer any other injury and was later transported to a local area hospital for prevention where he is expected to make a full recovery.

À 17h30 hier soir un incident a mobilisé les équipes de secours nautique à Pointe-Claire sur le Chemin du bord du Lac près de l'intersection Cartier. Une déneigeuse s'est enlisé dans l'eau brisant la glace sous son poids et emprisonant le conducteur à quelques mètres du rivage. Le patient est vraisemblablement sorti de l'habitacle et s'est réfugié sur le toit du petit véhicule à moitié submergé. L'homme a du passer au moins 15 minutes entre le moment de l'appel et le moment du sauvetage, exposé à des températures dangereusement froides d'au moins -30 avec le facteur éolien. Les images au début de ce vidéo montrent le conducteur du véhicule prendre place sur le toit et tenter de se protéger avec une couverte. Les équipes d'urgence ont procédé rapidement pour extirper le patient de sa fâcheuse et critique position et ont utilisé une échelle d'un camion de pompier pour ce faire. La victime a été transportée dans une ambulance à proximité ou les ambulanciers ont observé des signes d'ypothermie. L'homme a été ammené à l'hopital par mesure préventive et on ne craint pas pour sa vie.
