Tree falls on Surrey worker

A worker reportedly injured after tree falls near Pacific Academy school in Fraser Heights

A worker has reportedly been injured after a tree fell on him near Pacific Academy school in Fraser Heights.

“We were called to assist BC Ambulance Service for a male who had been struck by a tree that had fallen due to the wind,” Surrey RCMP Sergeant Chad Greig told the Now-Leader. “That male was taken to hospital with injuries.”

It happened within the last hour, Greig said, and the worker’s condition is not yet known.

On Monday (Dec. 24) WorkSafeBC was not able to provide any update.

“I can confirm we were notified at 10:08 a.m. last Thursday by the Surrey RCMP about a serious incident in the area of 168 St. and 102 Ave.,” said WorkSafeBC spokeswoman Gillian Burnettt. “I’m afraid I can’t give you any more details about the worker than have been reported; We don’t release gender or age for privacy reasons, and I don’t know the worker’s medical condition.”
