Fundraiser for Victim of Montreal Train Accident


In early December Sarah Stott went out one night with some friends. As she was returning home she decided to take a short-cut through a train yard. Perhaps it was because she was using the detour for the first time, but she didn’t see nor hear the freight train that hit her. The details of her ordeal can be found here. She lost both legs  as well as most of her fingers due to severe frostbite.

Ms. Stott was a well-liked waitress at Montreal’s Irish Embassy Pub. On a few occasions I had the pleasure of being a customer of her’s. News of her accident traveled quickly and far, even Britain’s Daily Mail carried a piece on it. In an effort to do what they can, her colleagues at the pub are having a day-long fundraiser for her this Wednesday, February 11th, 2015.


“I know there are a million cases like this, but she’s part of our family,” said Joe Cannon, co-owner and general manager of the bar. “She was always bubbly and friendly and smiley, which isn’t always easy in this business.”

If you’re in Montreal, please drop by and have a jar. If you’re not around, there are other ways to help out if you can, including
