Myles Shumlanski received a frantic call from his son Nick claiming “The bus was in an accident”. He gathered his wife and raced in his vehicle to the crash site, less than a quarter mile from his home. They were the first family members on the scene. He could see that a devastating accident had occurred, noticing that when Nick came running to him he was only one of the two kids that seemed able to even walk.
Chapter 19 covers the story of the Humboldt Broncos and the heartbreaking tragedy that had Canada reeling.
