Barry Chalifoux was trapped inside of his burning car as it filled with smoke
Barry Chalifoux says he’s lucky to be alive after what seemed like a slight car malfunction turned into a terrifying ordeal.
On July 10, Chalifoux started on his regular weekly work commute from Loon Lake, Sask., to English River First Nation when he noticed that something was off midway through his journey.
“I was getting closer to Beauval when I saw smoke coming in. I saw smoke from the hood and also I could smell it coming into the vehicle,” he said.
