File # 2021-1522

On the evening of May 21 2021, Port Hardy RCMP received multiple calls about a suicidal female walking into the ocean with the intent of drowning herself. By the time officers arrived on scene, the female was very far from the shore. Without hesitation, Constable Dupuy and Constable Spenner both swam out to the distraught female and rescued her. Once safely on shore, the female was then transported by ambulance to the hospital for a further mental health evaluation. The quick thinking of both Constable Dupuy and Constable Spenner saved the individual involved and allowed her to get the help she needed. The Port Hardy RCMP would also like to thank the multiple callers who reported the incident as it was essential in helping the officers respond quickly.
