Kerry-Lynne Findlay taken to hospital as precaution after suffering gash to head

Kerry-Lynne Findlay, the Conservative candidate for South Surrey-White Rock, was taken to hospital this afternoon (Sept. 8) as a precaution after suffering a “pretty scary-looking” cut to her head in a fall.

Campaign manager Fritz Radandt confirmed just after 2 p.m. that Findlay was “just dropped off at emergency” with a “giant gash on her head.”

She tripped on a step at home, while preparing to head to a meet-and-greet event with seniors at Bakerview Park in South Surrey.

Radandt said Findlay “seems to be OK… she was in a bit of pain but she was totally lucid.”

“But we just wanted to be sure.”

Radandt said members of Findlay’s team would attend in her absence.
