FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A GoFundMe account has been set up on behalf of Tony Brooks, the RCMP Constable that saved a man’s life last year in Fort St. John.
Brooks has been diagnosed with Stage Two cancer and will be having surgery and receiving chemotherapy according to the GoFundMe account. The account goes on to say ‘financial help received will help take the stress off of his family so that they can focus on his recovery.’
In July 2018, Brooks saved a mans life when he used his advanced medical training and managed to pack the wound to close off the artery inside the man’s arm and stop the flow of blood. The injured man was then airlifted to a Vancouver area hospital for treatment.
At the time of the incident, the detachment had received feedback from Vancouver Doctors who had inquired with the Doctor in charge of the Tactical Medical Program, to applaud the incredible work done by Cst. Brooks, who literally saved this man’s life, shared Sgt. Tyreman in July 2018.
The GoFundMe account has almost reached half of its goal amount of $10,000 in three days.
