Last weekend resqme, Inc. President and Founder, Laurent Colasse, traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana to take part in an interview with WISH TV Channel 8 and Troy Kehoe. He later participated in a live demonstration alongside the Indiana State Police Underwater Search and Rescue team, the National Drowning Prevention Alliance, and Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht, an Associate Dean at the University of Manitoba and an expert on submerged vehicles.
As per Fox 59, they “helped teach dozens Saturday how to escape if their car ever was submerged in water” and “the proper steps for escaping a car that has crashed into water. Groups gathered for a classroom seminar that included an actual car submerged into a retention pond during the demonstration.” The event was in conjunction with the World Aquatic Health Conference in Indianapolis that went on from October 16-18, 2013.
Other guests and participants included law enforcement, fire fighters, paramedics, advocate Mary Kay Kidwell and Detective Bob May.
