NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. -- Two people have died in an apparent industrial accident at a lumber yard in the Metro Vancouver area.
Spokeswoman Barb McLintock says British Columbia's Coroners Service was called on Saturday afternoon to the lumber yard in New Westminster.
She says there were two workers who were dead in what appeared to be an industrial accident.
McLintock didn't provide the names of the workers, nor did she have the name of the lumber yard.
The province's workplace investigations agency says it's aware an incident occurred and has investigators standing by.
Trish Knight Chernecki of WorkSafeBC says investigators are waiting to gain access to the scene from New Westminster Police.
