D.O.T. Employee and Son Cited In Rescue of Four

 

Ottawa - A D.O.T. staff member and his son have been presented with awards from the Royal Canadian Humane Association for their part in saving the lives of three men including an employee of the Trent Canal system who nearly drowned in a boating accident.

 

Lloyd C. Cope, a member of the personnel staff at headquarters, and his son, Christopher, were among four persons who each received a Parchment for Bravery from the association for their actions in a rescue Nov. 12, 1967 at Ashby Lake in the Land-o-Lakes region north of Kaladar, Ont.

 

The two other rescuers who each received the association's parchment were Gerald O. Patry, a City of Ottawa fireman, and H. E. Anderson, a member of the Canadian Forces base at Trenton, Ont.

 

The three men rescued were J. B. Howard of Peterborough, a lockmaster on the Trent Canal system, and Elmer and Earle Rogers of the Kingston area, all members of a hunting party that got into difficulty when its boat capsized in the rough waters of Ashby Lake about 9.30 p.m.

 

The trio were returning to their camp across the lake when winds gusting to 40 miles per hour capsized the boat, throwing them into the near-freezing water.

 

Hearing cries for help, the four rescuers, including Mr. Cope and his son, set out in their boats and converged on the accident scene from two different directions, pulled the three men to safety and took them ashore.
