Elijah John’s Story
Elijah John isn’t sure how he pulled himself out of the wreckage. The 18-year-old was in shock, he was struggling to breathe, and his left arm was dangling. All this, after his car hydroplaned off the highway on a rainy November evening as Elijah was going from work to his home in Hope. Thanks to a passerby, Elijah would eventually be rushed to Royal Columbian Hospital – one of the province’s two major adult trauma centres.
