  • How paramedics responded to 911 calls from Air Transat passengers stranded in Ottawa

    Audio from paramedic dispatchers is shedding light on how emergency crews handled 911 calls from passengers stranded on the Ottawa airport's tarmac Monday, after their flights were diverted from Montreal due to bad weather.

    The recording, provided by live radio broadcast provider Broadcastify, covers about 25 minutes, from the paramedic call centre first dispatching crews to the Ottawa International Airport, to a final report back from one of the paramedics who went to the scene.

    It begins with a dispatcher announcing a "Code 4" at the airport — a potentially life-threatening emergency in which responding ambulances should turn on their lights but not necessarily their sirens.

    Ottawa family upset government won't cover out-of-country surgery

    Lamitta El-Roz loves comic book super heroes — especially Spiderman.

    When asked what super powers she'd like to possess, she doesn't hesitate.

    "I'd like to have flying powers."

    But her down-to-earth wishes are to dance, run and play Nerf gun games like other kids her age in the neighbourhood.

    Her parents are hoping surgery next month will allow their six-year-old daughter — born with spastic cerebral palsy — to at least sit up on her own. Their ultimate hope is for her to take a few steps with the help of a walker.
