The Elk Point Hospital is about five hundred dollars in the hole after their Heli-pad and landing lights were vandalized.
Elk Point RCMP arrived at the hospital on Monday morning and were told that the crime must have occurred sometime over the weekend.
Ten aviation lights and three lenses used by helicopters to land were all broken and a planter was left in the centre of the Heli-pad.
“This type of vandalism is not only costly but it put lives at risk,” says Constable Cindy Tymensen, Elk Point RCMP, “A seriously injured person may have had to wait a few extra minutes they did not have while a landing was attempted.”
