Port Mann bridge woes
The head of the Crown Corporation that built the Port Mann bridge says they're now reviewing Wednesdays closure of the multi-billion dollar span. Two people were injured and several vehicles were damaged after snow and ice fell from the support cables. Mike Proudfoot admits the coating on the cables that is supposed to push snow away from the deck, didn't work. But he says yesterday was a very unusual day weather wise.
Lost snow boarder reveals the secret to his survival
The snowboarder stranded on the Lower Mainland's North Shore for three days says his strong will and a bag full of urine kept him alive. 33 year old Sebastian Boucher was airlifted to safety Tuesday night with little more than cuts and bruises. He says he repeatedly told himself he wasn't going to die on the mountain. He also says he peed into a ziploc bag to stay warm. Cypress Mountain is demanding he pay 10 thousand dollars toward rescue costs. Boucher says he had already planned to donate money to search crews and says he will deal with the ski hill's demand for cash.
