Canada: Towed car held helpless woman

Vancouver Sun [Canada]

“As a Vancouver tow truck driver hauled a frosted-over white Toyota from a no-stopping zone early Wednesday morning, he apparently had no idea the distress going on inside. Beyond the iced windows of that four-door car, an 85-year-old woman lay helpless in the front seat, unable to alert anyone to the severity of her condition. For the next 21 hours, the woman would lie through temperatures as cold as -2 C, waiting in the car until early Thursday morning when someone finally discovered she was there. A Vancouver police spokesman said the woman, whom police have not identified, had been taken to hospital as soon as she was discovered. … Busters operations manager Ron Wood told Global News that it is not company policy to look inside vehicles’ windows. ‘I don’t believe we’re at fault,’ Wood said.” (02/04/07)
