North Shore Rescue was called to Mount Seymour’s Dog Mountain trail for a medical rescue.

CKNW reporter Robyn Crawford happened to be on a hike on Tuesday when she came across a 49-year-old man lying in the snow about 15 metres from the lookout of Dog Mountain at Seymour.

He was complaining of chest pains and had little colour in his face.

Crawford called North Shore Rescue, who airlifted the man to hospital.

A cardiac nurse with more than 30 years experience also happened to be on the trail and stayed with him until crews arrived.
