TWO DIE AFTER US­ING PROPANE-FU­ELLED OUT­DOOR SHOWER

National Post (National Edition) - - CANADA -

RCMP and Bri­tish Columbia’s coroner are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the sud­den deaths of a man and woman in Tulameen, north of Prince­ton. Po­lice say they were no­ti­fied late Mon­day that two adults were in med­i­cal dis­tress on a prop­erty con­tain­ing sev­eral tents used to host a long-week­end gath­er­ing. A news re­lease from po­lice says a 31-year-old woman and 37-year-old man en­tered an out­door shower shed and were found un­con­scious about an hour later. Cpl. Jesse O’Don­aghey says po­lice don’t be­lieve anything crim­i­nal led to the deaths. He says early find­ings in­di­cate the shower build­ing was sup­plied with an on-de­mand propane hot wa­ter sys­tem and first re­spon­ders said there was a heavy odour of propane at the scene.
