December 20, 2016
A 42-year-old combat veteran is in hospital and getting the care he needs following an unusual incident in the Health Sciences parking lot last night.
Police were called to the Health Sciences around 11:45 last night following reports of a man driving erratically in the lot and smashing his pickup into vehicles and other property.
The man had to be subdued by police using a taser
A family member tells VOCM News the man, who served many years in the military both in Canada and in Bosnia, had gone to the hospital seeking help but never had the nerve to go in.
She says he's now receiving care and she encourages any military veterans or others struggling with PTSD to reach out and get the help they need.
