Fatal boom boat incident at Kelowna, B.C. Tolko mill

KELOWNA, British Columbia (From Globalnews.ca) -- An investigation is under way into a fatal industrial accident Monday night at the Tolko mill in Kelowna.

Rescue officials were called to the mill -- located in Kelowna's north end shortly after 9 p.m., dealing with a sunken boom boat.

Union president, Pat McGregor, said it was fatal accident.

"The little that I know is the boom boat sank in Okanagan Lake last and there was a worker still on the boat," McGregor said.

He said the victim had been working at the mill for at least 25 years.

"He was well liked. Had a lot of friends. It's touching a lot of people," McGregor said.

McGregor said the RCMP and WorksafeBC were at the scene investigating.
