One of two survivors of the Nov. 10 Bearskin Airlines plane crash in Red Lake has released a statement wishing well for the families of the five people who were killed in the accident.
“Words cannot describe the overwhelming feeling of love and support that I have received over the past few days,” said Julie Dayholos, in a statement released by the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, where she is receiving treatment. “I want everyone to know that I am doing well and on the road to recovery following the accident on November 10th.”
“During this time, my thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost their loved ones.
I would like to thank everyone who has sent prayers my way and especially my family who has been at my side every day. I would also like to thank the staff at Red Lake Hospital and Health Sciences Centre Winnipeg for taking such good care of me, and for helping me through this journey.”
Dayholos, 50, was pulled from the plane wreckage by the other survivor: a 29-year old male who was the one to report the accident by calling 911 from his cell phone.
Both Dayholos and the other survivor were sent to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Dayholos has asked for privacy as she focuses on recovery and healing.
