A family from North Vancouver were out boating on the lake. When they were on their way to the shore the driver turned the boat and a 6-year-old fell over board. The child was then struck by the boat.

The 6-year-old was quickly rushed to the pier on Kal Lake to receive treatment from paramedics and the ambulance but sadly the child died of injuries.
