A couple of Saskatchewan are lucky to be alive after a mudslide swept them off a cliff in British Columbia.
Gabe Rosescu and his girlfriend, Sheri Niemegeers, are recovering in hospital.
The pair were en route to Nelson B.C on May 17 when Don Struthers, Rocescu’s brother-in-law, says one minute the pair were driving down the road and the next minute, they were engulfed my mud and trees as they had no opportunity to hit the brakes or anything.
He said the couple was lucky that a pileup of trees stopped the vehicle from tumbling all the way down the cliff.
Rosescu was airlifted to a Kelowna, B.C., hospital, where he is recovering with head injuries, including some bleeding in the brain and a broken orbital bone.
Niemegeers was taken to a hospital in Trail, B.C., and is being treated for a broken sternum and ankle.
A GoFundMe page has started to help the pair with expenses incurred as a result of the accident
