Two die in propane-pow­ered out­door shower shed

Times Colonist - - Island / B.c. -

PRINCE­TON — 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. Early find­ings in­di­cate the build­ing was sup­plied with an on-de­mand propane hot wa­ter sys­tem and first re­spon­ders said there was a heavy odour of propane.
