FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A couple of good samaritans stopped to save the life of a driver when they saw the scene of a near-tragedy.
On Tuesday night, April 14, a single vehicle rollover took place on the Alaska Highway, just north of the intersection at Highway 29.
While they were driving along the highway, Dylan Rioux and his partner, Monica, happened to spot a vehicle rolled over in a ditch filled with water.

Rioux says he and Monica stopped to help and was told the driver was still in the vehicle, submerged in the water.
Thinking quickly, with the the assistance of a nearby skid steer operator, the truck was lifted and were able to get the driver out.
Rioux says Monica performed CPR and she was able to revive the driver.
The driver was then transported to hospital and later flown to Prince George in stable condition.
