A jet ski accident on the Fraser River in Richmond has claimed two lives.
The Coast Guard was alerted by a tugboat crew at 9 p.m. Thursday about two people in the water off No. 5 Road.
The hovercraft was dispatched, and pulled out the two men, both in their 50s and wearing life-jackets.
They had severe head injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene.
Lighting and speed are considered factors in the incident.
The men’s names have been released.
