A Cold Lake RCMP officer is being credited with playing a crucial part in a life-saving blood plasma delivery.
Officials say a Bonnyville-based doctor contacted mounties looking for help with getting the blood plasma from the Cold Lake hospital. Constable Mattie of the Cold Lake detachment is said to have responded to the call and quickly made the delivery.
In a post on Facebook, the doctor involved is quoted as saying that the “quick delivery of the blood/plasma most certainly saved the patient’s life—who is now recovering in Edmonton.”
“When asked about the call, Cst. Mattie said that it was a feel-good type of duty and she was more than happy to get out to help.”
