WHISTLER, B.C. -- The BC Coroner Service has released the names of a North Vancouver man and his daughter who were killed when a boulder crashed onto their tent near Whistler.
Forty-nine-year-old Trevor Norman and his 10-year-old daughter Zarah were on a skiing and camping trip near Blackcomb Mountain last weekend when they set up their tent at the base of a 20-metre rock.
When they hadn't checked in with family members as planned on Sunday they were reported missing.
Searchers later found their camp site and determined a large boulder had fallen from a rock face and landed on their tent while they inside.
The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate the deaths.
