Some quick work from Cumberland Fire Rescue helped save the lives of 2 people over the weekend.

A quad mishap happened high above Comox Lake.

Cumberland’s Assistant Fire Chief Craig Windley says 2 people got too close to the edge of the road and were launched about 20 feet off the road, with the quad following and falling another 100-150 feet down.

The male rider suffered only minor injuries, according to Windley.
