Chilliwack RCMP is confirming one man has died in what it’s calling an ATV involved incident.
Doug Fraser with the Chilliwack Search and Rescue says they were called to the Tamahi Creek area just after 1pm.
“A male had gone down about 300-350 feet – it was quite steep, rugged terrain. We put in one of our members and an ALS paramedic – and that’s when we got word the subject was deceased.”
Fraser says the man was with his adult son on a very narrow stretch of trail when the accident happened.
His daughter, Natasha Rotzetter adds her father was helping an inexperienced ATV driver when another quad lost control and hit him.
“He fell 1,500 feet and was pushed off by another quad.”
The incident is still under investigation.
