Participants in the rescue of Bernard Drolet were honored by Sun Youth and presented at a ceremony at PDQ 13 in LaSalle.

On June 15, 2012, 47 year old cyclist Bernard Drolet (above- red shirt), accidentally fell off his bicycle and into the Lachine Canal. Seven citizens came to his rescue and managed to save him from drowning. To mark their bravery, Sun Youth held a ceremony at Police Station 13 in LaSalle on Thursday, July 12. The cyclist suffered a medical emergency while traveling in the area of St. Patrick Street and Fort Remy Street. He subsequently lost control of his bicy- cle, went over a barrier, and fell into the waters of the Lachine Canal. Without hesitating, bystanders Joseph Nico, Simon Dexter, Sean Mudrosky, St├ęphane Lanteigne, and Sylvain Bergevin, as well as two Sun Youth bike patrollers working in the borough of Lachine- Jessica Jean-Person and Ariane Beaulieu, came to his rescue. It was a risky operation because they had to work as a group and form a human chain to reach the cyclist, who was in a perilous position. When the ambulance arrived on the scene, they took care of Mr. Drolet and brought him to a hospital. Sun Youth awarded the good Samaritans with a plaque and a gift card each. The victim of the incident, Bernard Drolet, was also present to thank those who rescued him. Sun Youth's Good Samaritan of the month program was established in 2001 and has honored 54 people to date.
