Abbotsford woman dies in boating accident on the Harrison River
A 22-year-old Abbotsford woman has died following a boating accident Saturday on the Harrison River in Agassiz.
Police arrived to the Sandpiper Boat Launch on Morris Valley Road to find one of the four occupants of the boat seriously injured.
The 18-foot Glastron powerboat was travelling up river when it struck a log chained to a boom.
As a result of the impact, the woman sustained a serious head injury that later resulted in her death.
“This is a really tragic accident,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “By all accounts, everyone on the boat was doing everything right. There will be no criminal investigation into the cause of this accident.”
Any further details regarding this accident will be released by the BC Coroner Service.
