Terrace RCMP is asking for witnesses to come forward and assist in last night’s (July 27) investigation into an incident of man suffering a severe neck wound near the Old Bridge.

Investigation has led us to believe that that the incident occurred next to the banks of the Skeena River south and west of the Old Bridge off of Queensway Dr. The man managed to make his way to the Old Bridge via a grass trail where a motorist helped him. We are piecing together what happened to him, but the man became unconscious prior to us speaking with him. We are looking for witnesses to come forward, says Sgt. Mike Robinson, Operations Support NCO.

Police were called to disturbance on the Old Bridge just before 9 p.m. last night.

On arriving a 50-year-old man bleeding quite severely from the neck was located.

He was transported to Mills Memorial Hospital by BC Ambulance and later flown to Vancouver due to the severity of his injury.

Terrace General Investigation Section continues to investigate assisted by the Terrace Forensic Identification Section, Terrace Crime Reduction Unit, and Terrace General Duty.
