On Friday July 26, Madeline (Maddy) Stroup, the daughter of Burnaby Fire Captain Dean Stroup and Emergency Program Officer for Port Coquitlam Fire Department, Tara Stroup, was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident.

The incident has tragically taken the life of Hayden Turcotte, Maddy’s boyfriend. May he rest in peace. Also in the vehicle was their friend, Tyrell Gait, who has been released from hospital. We ask that you keep both of these boys and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

Maddy, Hayden and Tyrell were making their way in the early afternoon to pick up another friend and head to the family cabin when they were unexpectedly struck by another vehicle.

Everyone is being urged to donate what they can. Nearly $12,000 has already been donated.
