More funerals for Humboldt Broncos bus crash victims

More funerals for Humboldt Broncos bus crash victims

Less than a week after the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, a broadcaster in his first year as play-by-play announcer for the team is the first victim was laid to rest today.

Batten, now 38, says she can't help but think of her own childhood tragedies as she mourns last week's horrific accident near Tisdale involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team, which also injured 14 people.

Hundreds filled the Blackfalds Multiplex Friday night where a memorial service was held for the 16 people who died in last week's tragic bus crash.

Two other funerals are scheduled for Friday.

Your household Dayna Brons, " twenty five, introduced she'd "passed away peacefully" in a Saskatoon hospital.


It's a big reason she's heeding the call of a group of British Columbia hockey moms to wear a jersey as a show of solidarity with victims' families and the tight-knit Prairie community of Humboldt, Sask. Her 16-year-old son plays with the Langley Minor Hockey Association, and she told CTV Vancouver that all hockey families immediately felt the pain in Humboldt. The photo will be sent to the Broncos and the City of Humboldt.

Earlier on Wednesday, Singh said and he was quoted by CTV News, "I'm just sorry for everything".

She would prep the team's equipment before the team arrived for practice or a game.

The outpouring of support stretches from the NHL to amateur hockey lovers using #PutoutYourSticks to let the people of Humboldt know everyone is on their team.

"Because a hockey team like this doesn't have the budget of an NHL team, she was doing that job that at least nine people are doing for a professional team", she added.


Pinch says she just needed to do something. "Dayna will be forever remembered for her joyful smile, and her passion and love of sport".

Students at Mount Royal University are taking part in the show of support and it hits close to one particular department at the institution.

Every person who registers as a donor has the potential to save eight people's lives through organ donation, and their tissue could better the lives of 75 others, said Gavsie. "Our prayers to you all".

Lacrosse and soccer teams that Brons also worked with had offered their support for the keen, happy trainer on social media. It's more I'm glad to see it happen because we know that as a community, we always band together when something like this happens. From managing a stick budget to managing a tape budget to managing an equipment budget.
