The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identities of two men who died as a result of separate workplace accidents in the Lower Mainland.
Hardial Singh, aged 40, of Surrey, died on July 10 while working at a cement plant in Vancouver. He was trapped when a large amount of gravel fell on him from a cement truck.
David William Leon, aged 48, also of Surrey, died the next day while working on construction of the North South Perimeter Road in Delta. Mr. Leon was working on-site when he was struck by a construction vehicle.
The Coroners Service and WorkSafe BC are continuing to investigate both these deaths.
The families of the two men have been notified of their deaths. On behalf of the families, the Coroners Service asks that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time.
The BC Coroners Service expresses its condolences to the families and friends of Mr. Singh and Mr. Leon and also its appreciation to WorkSafe BC for their assistance with these investigations.
