Elgin County woman dies as car drags her into pond
By Ryan CUREATZ, Free Press Reporter, Thurs., June 22, 2006
An Elgin County woman trying to rush fish into her backyard pond died in a freak accident when her car dragged her into the water.
Cheryl DINKEL, 46, had been reported missing about 8 a.m. last Friday. Her body and a 1996 Ford Taurus were later found by police divers after West Lorne firefighters drained the pond.
Yesterday, her sister-in-law said DINKEL was trying to get a bucket filled with young perch into her own pond before they died when the mishap occurred about 1 a.m. Friday.
Only hours earlier, on Thursday night, DINKEL had caught the fish on an outing to Port Glasgow with her best friend, her sister-in-law said.
DINKEL was trying to dump the fish into her five-metre-deep pond, when somehow her car lurched forward, pinning her inside and taking her into the water where she drowned, she said.
"It was just a horrible accident," said Elgin Ontario Provincial Police Const. Michelle SCOTT.
Rather than park on the drive of her five-acre Graham Road property, near West Lorne, DINKEL drove close to the pond to unload the fish.
DINKEL had a heart of gold and was known for her thoughtfulness and generosity, her sister-in-law said.
"She was always helping everybody and never asked for anything in return."
She is survived by her husband, Manfred, and children Gerald and Samantha.
Passionate about caring for special needs children in the community, DINKEL also liked to fish and enjoyed gardening, her sister-in-law said.
She also had an outgoing personality, liked a joke and loved to cook.
"If she knew you were coming to her house, there was a huge meal waiting on the table," her sister-in-law said.
She cared for many animals at her home, including a dog, cats and only weeks ago had found some baby rabbits she tried to nurse to health.
"She couldn't leave them there, she was afraid they'd die," her sister-in-law said.

A terrible price
4 more Canadians die in Afghanistan.
By Murray BREWSTER, Canadian Press and Free Press Staff, Sun., April 23, 2006
Kandahar, Afghanistan -- Taliban militants struck with fury early yesterday, killing four soldiers in one of the worst one-day combat losses for the Canadian army since the Korean War.
The soldiers were identified as:
- Cpl. Matthew DINNING of Wingham, stationed with the 2nd Canadian Mechanized Brigade in Petawawa.
- Bombardier Myles MANSELL of Victoria.
- Lieut. William TURNER of Toronto, but stationed in Edmonton.
- Cpl. Randy PAYNE, born in Lahr, Germany, but stationed at Canadian Forces Base Wainright, Alberta.
Two of the troopers were part of Brig.-Gen. David Fraser's personal protection force. The third was an artillery non-commissioned officer and the fourth man was a liaison officer with local tribal leaders.
In Wingham, Friends of the DINNING family paid tribute to Matthew.
"He was a tremendous young chap, a great young fellow," said former neighbour Jack GOODALL.
Matthew DINNING, 23, was inspired to join the military by his father, an Ontario Provincial Police officer who served as a peacekeeper in Kosovo, Friends said.
"It's closer to home," said Fraser, having to look away after being asked about the close-knit group he often calls his posse. "Every soldier over here is important to me. I feel that way about everybody in the brigade, but I knew these guys."
A bomb, which may have been buried in the road, detonated just outside the village of Gumbad, 75 kilometres north of Kandahar. The huge explosion was reportedly felt kilometres away.
The four-vehicle convoy was returning to Kandahar after Fraser's goodwill visit Friday with village elders. The general, who is also the multi-national brigade commander in southern Afghanistan, returned by helicopter Friday night.
The third vehicle in the convoy, a G-Wagon carrying the four soldiers, was struck by an improvised explosive device at about 7: 30 a.m. local time.
Three of the soldiers died at the scene and the fourth died in hospital after being airlifted by a U.S. Blackhawk helicopter.
"While we are saddened by their loss, we will not forget them or their sacrifice," said Fraser, calling the soldiers "outstanding Canadians" who believed in what they were doing in Afghanistan.
"We will redouble our efforts in southern Afghanistan in their memory."
There was stunned disbelief among troops at Kandahar airfield, the main coalition base in southern Afghanistan.
"It was so many at once, four guys," said Capt. Janus Cihlar.
"When you know them, perhaps not personally, but have worked with them, it hits even harder."
Cihlar said the loss strengthens the resolve of soldiers on the ground.
"Once everyone has a chance to take their pause and get over the initial shock of the news, certainly everyone buckles down and says, 'We have a job here and a mission here.' "
The bodies will be returned to Canada early in the week, with a ramp ceremony on the tarmac at Kandahar airfield planned for tomorrow, said Col. Tom Putt, deputy commanding officer of Task Force Afghanistan.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a statement extending his condolences to the family and Friends of the four slain soldiers.
"These men were working to bring security, democracy, self-sufficiency and prosperity to the Afghan people and to protect Canadians' national and collective security," Harper said. "I am proud of the work that is being done there and the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to do it."
The flag continued to fly yesterday on the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. The newly elected Conservative government has said it will no longer lower the flag to half-staff every time a Canadian soldier is killed, a break with tradition established by the Liberals.
A total of 15 Canadian soldiers and one diplomat have died since 2002, when Canada first became involved in Afghanistan following the ouster of the hardline Taliban regime.
The last time the army suffered a one-day loss of this scale was in April 2002, when four Canadian soldiers were mistakenly bombed by a U.S. fighter jet.
Before that, army historians would have to reach back to May 1953, when the Royal Canadian Regiment suffered a horrendous one-day combat loss during the Korean War. About two dozen Canadians died while holding off an enemy attack during that battle.
Two more explosions shook the main coalition airbase in southern Afghanistan early today, officials said.
No damage or casualties were reported.

Loss hits home
Mark Andrew WILSON is the first Londoner killed in action in Canada's mission in Afghanistan.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter, Mon., October 9, 2006
London native Mark Andrew WILSON of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, based in Petawawa, was the 40th Canadian to die in Afghanistan since 2002, matching the number of British soldiers killed in the country since the Taliban were overthrown. The vaunted Nyala RG-31 armoured vehicle WILSON was travelling in was hit while on a pre-dawn run to pick up other troops in the Panjwaii district of southern Afghanistan, military officials said. (Canadian Press)
As Canadian families joined to count their blessings this Thanksgiving, one London family gathered in grief.
Relatives and Friends poured yesterday into a home still marked by yellow ribbons awaiting the return of London native Mark Andrew WILSON.
WILSON, 39, a father of two boys who live in Sudbury with his wife, became the 40th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan since 2002 when his armoured vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb Saturday.
The first Londoner killed in action, he was also Southwestern Ontario's third fatality in Afghanistan.
"We put the ribbons up when he left for Afghanistan in August. We weren't going to take them down until he returned," his mother, Carolyn WILSON -- visibly shaken, but trying to be strong -- said last night at the family's home.
Similar ribbons decorate trees and lamp posts throughout WILSON's boyhood home on Toulon Crescent.
WILSON, a soldier with the Petawawa-based Royal Canadian Dragoons, died Saturday when a roadside bomb exploded as he rode inside a Nyala armoured truck in the Panjwaii district of southern Afghanistan.
He leaves behind wife Dawn and sons Josh, 17, and Ben, 11, along with a tight-knit family based in London: his parents, 35-year old twin brothers and a 28-year-old sister, all devastated by his death.
Between anguished breakdowns and tearful hugs, family members hailed the eldest son as their "rock," the "caretaker," "the one who was always smiling."
"He was my caretaker, my biggest big brother," said Andrea, 28, who was with her parents at a Peterborough-area cottage for Thanksgiving when they received the news they had feared most.
"He was the kind of guy everybody loved," said Sean, 35. "He was the one who was always smiling," he added, overcome by emotion.
"I'm sorry, I'm so mad."
Sean's twin Scott was rushing home from Sudbury to be with the family last night.
WILSON joined the army at 35, far later than most troops.
An outdoor enthusiast who loved camping, kayaking and hiking, he had already tried his hand at many things, including a bed and breakfast with his wife in Killarney and several jobs in London, when he "woke up one day and decided to join the military," his younger brother said.
"Then he told us he wished he had done so straight out of high school. He just loved it," added his mom.
"I wasn't real comfy with it, but I would support my son in any decision he made."
And it would have been hard not to, once the family saw how happy WILSON was being a soldier.
"He said, 'I can't believe they would pay me to do this,' " said Sean. "He absolutely loved it. He said he would have volunteered to do it."
In an online entry posted late in August, WILSON seemed optimistic about Canada's mission to Afghanistan.
"We can definitely make a difference in the lives of many, many people who are in such need of the assistance," he wrote.
At the beginning, he was upbeat, his mom said, but last week things changed after Cpl. Robert MITCHELL, another Canadian soldier, was killed.
"He sounded really upset because his friend had been killed," she recalled of her last phone conversation with her son, last Wednesday.
"I think he sounded really, really frightened," she said.
"He said, 'I know we're doing a good job, but it's so horrible, we don't know who our enemy is.'
"He said nothing could have prepared them (the military) for what they were facing," she said.
But even as they mourn their loss, the family has nothing but support for the soldiers in that mission, said WILSON's father, Carl, who spent years as a principal in the local Catholic school board before retiring eight years ago.
"We support the military and I am so proud of (Mark)," he said.
"He loved what he was doing, he knew it was dangerous, but he was proud. And I am proud because he was."
The phone at the family home was ringing off the hook last night as members of the military and relatives from around the world called in.
WILSON's wife and sons plan to meet WILSON's parents in Toronto on Wednesday and travel together to Canadian Forces Base Trenton when his body arrives home.
A military funeral in London is scheduled next Monday in London.
WILSON was the third soldier from Southwestern Ontario to be killed in Afghanistan.
Pte. William CUSHLEY of Port Lambton, near Sarnia, died last month and Cpl. Matthew DINNING of Wingham, in Huron County, in April.
