Babine Forest Products inquest in the homestretch

The coroner’s inquest into the explosion at the Babine Forest Product’s mill in Burns Lake is now in the hands of the jury.

The explosion killed two mill workers, Robert Luggi and Carl Charlie.

Chico Newell, the presiding coroner, has completed his instructions to the jury.

The jury will deliberate until 5:30pm this evening, then resume tomorrow at 9am.

The inquest at Burns Lake heard from a multitude of expert witnesses, former and current mill workers, and first responders.

The jury will provide recommendations that will hopefully prevent similar deaths from occurring in the future.
