Tragedy at Occupy Vancouver protest
A friend of the deceased woman found her inside a tent and initially thought she was sleeping. The woman was given CPR but could not be resuscitated.
The area was blocked off for ambulances and fire trucks to come in. The young woman was transported to a healthcare facility and declared dead. The police stated that they do not believe the death to be suspicious.
The death of the woman occurred among increasing controversy regarding the safety of Occupy Vancouver’s tent city.

The day before, a man nearly died of an overdose at the camp.
