CPR given to a child at Lynn Canyon

An American teen died from his injuries after going over a waterfall at Lynn Canyon. Those who are visiting Lynn Canyon were jumping off the cliffs into the snow-fed river.

Although the boy was not cliff-jumping when he died, police are concerned about those who are continuing to launch themselves off of Lynn Canyon’s steep drops.

The 16-year old boy from Pennsylvania who was visiting family in Vancouver was swept under the water by the strong currents and ended up being pulled over a waterfall in the Twin Falls area.

He was unresponsive when he was pulled from the water by bystanders, who started CPR. The emergency responders later performed a rope rescue and loaded the boy into an ambulance. He later died of his injuries at the Lions Gate Hospital.
