They’re in Denmark for the world championships, but Canada’s junior curling team will come home heroes for another reason.
Two members of the Manitoba based men’s team sprung into action to help lift heavy machinery off a pinned construction worker on their way to the rink this week.
Second Kyle Doering(pictured second from right) and 5th Wade Ford were walking outside when they heard a bang.
“When we saw him laying there we ran over as fast as we could to try and help.” Doering told 680 CJOB from Denmark, as Matt Dunstone skips the men’s team at the worlds. “When we got up close we saw that it had got his leg.”
Doering, Ford, and some passers by were able to lift up the backhoe like machine, but the man’s leg appeared crushed underneath the weight.
Canada is still in action this week at the Worlds, looking to book a spot in the playoffs.
