FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for a first responder from Fort St. John who was seriously injured in a freak accident during a trip to Southeast Asia.

31 year-old Fort St. John resident Jesse Lynn March has spent the last four months travelling on the trip of a lifetime to Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. On September 18th, March fell off a balcony in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh. She suffered a fractured pelvis, three cracked ribs, a broken arm, and serious internal bleeding because of the fall, and was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

After being stabilized, March was airlifted to a hospital in Bangkok where she underwent surgery to treat some of her injuries, while her mother took an emergency flight to Thailand to be with her daughter.

A GoFundMe campaign for March was set up by a friend of March’s mother that lives in Chemainus on Vancouver Island. After being set up on September 20th, the campaign has raised nearly $15,000 of its $25,000 goal to help with March’s emergency medical expenses while her family waits to hear from travel insurance companies.
