Athletic therapist dies after Humboldt bus crash, raising death toll to 16

St. Albert hockey community mourning the loss of four players in Humboldt Broncos bus crash

Dayna Brons, a 24-year-old athletic therapist who was on the bus, lost her fight for life on Wednesday.

"Dayna's family would like to thank the first responders, emergency staff, and all those who have cared for Dayna over these last few days for their support".

"They would like to thank everyone across Saskatchewan and Canada for their love and prayers during this very hard time".

However, the family is asking for privacy from media and will not be responding to interview requests.

On April 6, the Humboldt Broncos were headed north to Nipawin, Sask., for a playoff game when their bus collided with a semi-truck at a remote intersection near Tisdale, Sask.

Sixteen passengers, including players, coaches, team staff and the bus driver, died in the crash while 13 others were injured.

"We spent a lot of time in that room and it's just sad, just sad", said Kennedy, who has farmland in Saskatchewan.

But Brons loved her job, said Wickenheiser who has been in contact with Brons' family since the crash.

"As the athletic therapist, the impact she made on the team was equal to that of any player", Canadian hockey star Hayley Wickenheiser told CNN.
