One person is dead following an industrial accident at Cypress Mountain Resort in West Vancouver Tuesday.

West Vancouver Police attended Cypress Mountain around 4:20 p.m., said Sgt. Mark McLean, after a frond-end loader overturned, pinning the operator underneath.

Unfortunately, the operator did not survive, said McLean, and the coroner was called to the scene.

Police have not released the name of the person who died, pending notification of next of kin, said McLean.

“Going forward we will be investigating what caused this incident in conjunction with WorkSafe BC.”
