Inquest date set for Lavington mill death
The B.C. Coroners Service has established new dates for a public inquest into the death of a Lumby man.
Bradley Haslam, 18, died June 15, 2013 as a result of a workplace incident at the Tolko Industries mill in Lavington.
The inquest will start Oct. 20 at 9:30 a.m. at the Vernon Courthouse.
"Presiding coroner, T.E. Chico Newell, and a jury will hear evidence from witnesses under oath to determine the facts surrounding this death," said Barbara McLintock, with the B.C. Coroners Service.
"The jury will have the opportunity to make recommendations aimed at preventing deaths under similar circumstances."
The inquest was originally scheduled to begin March 31 but was delayed so further information about the incident could be considered.
