An air ambulance arrived at South Delta Secondary last Thursday afternoon to respond to a call of an injured rugby player.
The ambulance was dispatched due to regular ambulance service reportedly being stuck in a George Massey Tunnel traffic jam.
Shortly after the helicopter landed, a regular ambulance arrived to transport the player to hospital.
The teen boy hurt his leg but was not seriously injured.
SDSS was playing a touring rugby team from a school in London, England when the injury occurred.
The province recently announced its transportation infrastructure funding plan over the next five years to increase capacity on key provincial highways, but the tunnel wasn't identified as one of those projects.
Delta council has commissioned an economic study of traffic congestion at the George Massey Tunnel.
