Ten Broncos crash victims still in hospital; two remain in critical condition

As Humboldt, Saskatchewan grieves the loss of 16 people in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, the rest of Canada pays tribute.

Glen Doerksen, who was 59 and from Carrot River, was driving the team's bus to a junior hockey playoff game in Nipawin when there was a collision with a truck.

The funerals of Jacob Leicht, a left-winger, and Adam Herold, who would have turned 17 today, will be held on Friday.

Her death brings the total number of dead to 16.

Hundreds of citizens donned their jerseys, sharing messages of solidary and support via social media.

Brons will be remembered for her joyful smile, and passion and love for sport, the press release noted, saying Brons was extremely proud to be part of the Broncos family.

In a similar gesture earlier this week, many people in the city wore green, and city council wore Meadow Lake Sr. He was only in his first year as a play-by-play announcer for the Broncos.

Staff and students at most local schools also took part.

Garinger says no student, parent or teacher has to feel alone. "It hits home for them that this could happen anywhere", she said of her school's community, which includes several hockey players.

"My class is always wanting to do things to help others", Brake said. They are now going through a tragedy that no family or community should experience.
