Humboldt Jr's Bus Crash

This is awful, the story does say a number of fatalities. I have heard a number, and it is from a reliable source, but I think I will leave the number alone until it is confirmed.

My Cousin plays for the broncos and the crash actually happened only about a quarter mile from his parents house, Aunt said they heard the crash happen. I’ve added a screen shot of the interview my uncle have to one of the news stations

A mother’s worst nightmare

As a mother of two, my heart aches for all involved. There is going to be a lifetime of healing ahead. Thinking of everyone affected today.

Just an opinion

Really Sad

This is heartbreaking beyond words. Those boys had a bright future ahead of them and now they're gone.

Very sad to hear!!

To see so many young hockey players involved and 14 lives gone.  
 
It was the Swift Current Broncos that lost 4 of their players 32 years ago in a bus crash.

now up to 15 deceased.

More than 1.5M raised already. I see Rogers Sportsnet donated $10,000.00, that is a wonderful gesture.  
 
https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/more-than-1-5m-raised-for-humboldt-broncos-after-deadly-bus-crash-1.3875472  
 
 
Many sites shoe tweets from people, interesting to see Trump and Ellen tweet their condolences.  
 
and from a great local business - from facebook |I read Joe Beevers was giving $2 from every poutine they sold to the fund.

from reading the link

  
Oryx said "What are the funds raised going to go toward: costs associated with funerals? "

Please help us raise money for the players and families affected. Money will go directly to families to help with any expenses incurred.  
 
 
I have read where some are being airlifted to bigger centers - Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary. I am sure families will have many expenses, that would no have been expected. Travel, hotels, meals, missed work......

Thanks Brenda.  
I am sure the goal will be reached with all the media attention the tragedy has received. Very sad.

I believe

the goal has been well surpassed. Think I heard it's in the $2 million range right now and still climbing.  
 
Lethbridge and Brandon did the samething as Jets/Blackhawks. Same with SC and MJ.

Logan Boulet is giving new hope to at least six different people. Logan made it clear previously that he signed his donor card as soon as he turned 21. Even in his eventual passing, he will be a selfless hero.

My God. "

joy for one family... their son is alive.... but heartache for another that their son is deceased... that's so sad.  
 
No one wants to make a mistake like that but I can't even imagine what the people involved went through when dealing with the horrific aftermath.

Vigil

A word from the chaplain of the team.  
Very moving and hopeful in a time when comfort is sought and answers to this tragedy.  
 
Trudeau was present.

The goal was $4,000,000 for the go fund me campaign. I just donated and it is now sitting at $5,807,182. It’s wonderful how people have come together to help like this. There have been donations from 65 countries which is amazing.

when the Go Fund Me page was created, they hoped for $60,000. But it exploded well past the original goal.
