A fire alarm was pulled in a parkade at Royal Jubilee Hospital on Thursday afternoon triggering a code red. It was later determined to have been a false alarm.

Someone in the parking garage pulled the fire alarm by accident setting off an alarms at the hospital, explained Island Health spokesperson Cheryl Bloxham.

The person was confused and ended up triggering the alarm, she noted. The code red was quickly called off.





i'm not even sure that's newsworthy.  the "confusion" is interesting though.

And yet you still posted it. Is Mike paying you a dollar for every news article you post or something?

capital news:




Recycling truck delivers dead body to Greater Victoria collection facility

Man in his 20s found dead after asphyxiating in recycling vehicle 

Last Tuesday, a Victoria man was found dead in a collection truck that had arrived to drop its load at Waste Connections of Canada, a Central Saanich recycling facility. Central Saanich police do not consider the death suspicious, and believe the man was homeless and attempting to keep warm in a recycling bin when it was emptied into a collection truck sometime between 5 and 8 a.m. In August 2018, a Victoria man sleeping in a dumpster died in almost identical circumstances when the bin was emptied into a collection truck.

an update on that tragic vancouver incident where the woman was dragged for blocks under the vehicle:



Danh said Evancio is aware of the extent of her injuries.


“She currently only has a few back teeth left from the accident. Her teeth will be dentures. Their concern is building her upper lip. The next surgery they may start with rebuilding her lower lip,” she wrote, adding Evancio does not remember the incident.


“I think she understands the extent of everything and how she was close to dying,” Danh wrote.


“Although she can’t make much of a facial reaction to things right now, you could see in her eye that a weight of financial burden was lifted from the many things running through her head,” she wrote, referring to the fundraiser.

A single-family home in Sidney suffered extensive damage in a fire Saturday evening.


The blaze started just before 4 p.m. in a home on Beacon Avenue West, said fire chief Brett Mikkelsen with the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department. Crews arrived to find large flames coming from the garage area of the one-storey home.
