The accident occurred around 6 p.m. local time (8:30 a.m. EST) on 24 November. The accident caused the death of 24-year-old Private Braun Scott Woodfield of Victoria, B.C., and serious injuries to Private Paul Schavo, 24,of London, Ont., Corporal Shane Dean Jones, 30, of Whiterock, B.C., and Sergeant Tony Nelson Mc Iver, 31, of Fredericton, N.B. Corporal James Edward Mc Donald, 32, of Pembroke, Ont, was also hurt, but his injuries have been classified as non-life threatening. All four injured soldiers are receiving medical care at a coalition hospital at Kandahar Airfield. The soldiers were conducting a vehicle-mounted patrol in the vicinity of the village of Lagman when the incident occurred. All five soldiers were part of Task Force Kabul, which had recently shifted operations to the Kandahar area.
