Two drivers heading down Sooke Road this afternoon found a man lying on the side of the road.

Sooke emergency services responded to a call at the corner of Sooke Road and Belvista Place after 2 p.m. from drivers who pulled over and found the middle-aged man unresponsive and lying on the gravel shoulder.

Const. Christina Klein of Sooke RCMP said one of the drivers started CPR and then handed it off to emergency responders.
