The deputy chief for York Region EMS says last weeks devastating fatal crash in Vaughan has taken a stressful toll on some of his workers.
Top paramedic Iain Park says eight of the 15 paramedics who attended the scene of Sunday’s crash in Vaughan – where three children and their grandfather were killed – have taken time off to seek help to treat post-traumatic stress disorder.
Park says in his 25-year career, he’s never seen a single incident affect so many workers.
The crash happened last Sunday on Kirby Road near Kipling Avenue. Daniel Neville-Lake (9-years-old), Harrison Neville-Lake (5-years-old), Millie Neville-Lake (2-years-old) and Gary Neville (65-years-old) were all killed following the collision.
29-year-old Marco Muzzo is facing a dozen impaired-driving offences and also faces six charges for the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle in connection to the incident.
A visitation for the Neville-Lake Family is scheduled for Sunday at the Brampton Funeral Home & Cemetery.
