How to deal with the death of a relative who was a good Samaritan

A man in Ontario died while driving under the influence, but his family says he didn’t deserve the death penalty.

The death of 26-year-old Jean-Michel Hélène has drawn international attention as a case of “good Samaritanism” and brought to light the growing problem of “blackout drunk driving” in Ontario.

Héléne died after he drove drunk at the intersection of the Highway 407 and Iqaluit Highway on June 12, 2018, while driving in the northbound lane of the highway.

“I didn’t see him, I didn’t know him, and I didn´t care,” said his brother, Jean-Pierre, who is also a paramedic.

“But when he said, ‘I´m not going to make a mistake, I don´t want to make another mistake, and if you need me to drive you home, please let me drive you.’

That is my son.

He was a great son.

My heart goes out to his family.”

Héliène had just returned home from a long trip and had been out for about a week before he was killed.

His death shocked his family and friends.

“He was such a gentle soul.

He just wanted to help people,” said Jean-François Héliéne, Jean’s father.”

His passion was always helping people.

He loved to help.

And then when he saw the situation, he just did everything he could to save the lives of others.”HÉLÉNE was the son of a former taxi driver who worked for a company in Iqaleetna, Que., when he was born in 1994.

He studied economics and history at the Université de Montréal before being awarded a scholarship to study engineering at the University of Ottawa.

A graduate of the University de Montéréal with a bachelor of science in engineering, Hélio was involved in several projects in Ontario and in Quebec.

He also had a job as a taxi driver.

“This is my first real life loss.

It has been my dream to be a paramedical and to work with young people and people with disabilities.

But I had this fear that I would lose my job,” he said.”

It was so much better to die at home than to go through the same experience as my brother.”HECO paramedic Jean-Paul Drouet told CBC News Hélo was driving under a cloud.

He said his colleague told him that Hélan would be a good driver.

The paramedic said he had to get the driver’s licence in order to get his licence to work.

“At that time, we were very worried that we would have to get it in order for him to work,” he recalled.

“In fact, it was very difficult.

He needed a licence, he needed a driver’s license, he had a licence to go to work.”

In 2018, HECO had about 5,000 paramedic members, but that number had dropped to 2,000 last year.

It said about 50 per cent of its members had graduated or were retired.

“They were very excited to have their jobs back, they were very proud of their service to the community, and it was really a very important and rewarding career,” said HECo’s president, Jacques Fournier.

“The community needs more people like Jean-Marc Héléne who will come forward and take responsibility for the actions of their colleagues.”HELIEO’S FAMILY SAYS HE WAS A GREAT SON”He just wanted people to get out of their cars,” said father Jean-Louis, who lives in Guelph, Ont.

“He was always looking for help.”

The Hélis were at the time living in Guelses, Que.HECC President Jacques Foulger said the group has not yet reached out to Hélelènes family.

“We have spoken to them and we are still in touch with them and will continue to do so,” Fouler said.
