A Canadian paramedic who unknowingly treated her own daughter after a fatal vehicle crash brushed away tears as she remembered a beautiful girl who fought until the end.

Montana Erickson, 17, was a passenger in an out-of-control car that collided with an oncoming truck on Nov. 15 on an icy road near Airdrie, Alberta.

Montana’s mom, Jayme Erickson, was summoned to the scene. But the teen was so badly disfigured, Erickson had no idea who she was.

Erickson was with Montana until she was extricated from the car and airlifted to a hospital, and “unknowingly was keeping her own daughter alive,” said friend and flight paramedic Richard Reed.

“The critically injured patient I had just attended to, was my own flesh and blood. My only child. My mini-me. My daughter, Montana,” Erickson wrote on Facebook. “Her injures were so horrific I did not even recognize her.”

“She was a fighter and she fought until the day that she died and she was beautiful,” said Erickson, who was the first person on the scene at the crash.

“She was so beautiful If she ever put an effort into anything she would always succeed at it,” Erickson told reporters while surrounded by other emergency personnel in a show of support.

“Montana was able to give one last gift,” Erickson said of her daughter being a donor, noting that two of her organs have already been donated and “were life-saving.”
