The B.C. Coroners Service say they will be looking into an accidental death that took place at Sun Peaks Resort the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 25.
Twenty-four year old Nick Guido died after he crashed into a metal support at the base of a ski chairlift while sledding on a crazy carpet.
BC Ambulance Service responded to the 911 call at the ski hill at approximately 1:15 p.m., where it is reported they found Guido to be in critical condition. He was transported to Royal Inland Hospital.
It was later reported that Guido, the father of a two-year-old daughter with his girlfriend, Savannah Dakers, had passed away.
The rural detachment of the RCMP is investigating the accident.
Kamloops This Week reports that this is not the first time tragedy has hit the Guido family.
In February 2004, Guido’s brother Josh, 17, was one of two teens killed when an 85-year-old driver went through a red light on Tranquille Road and hit five teens in the crosswalk as they headed to nearby Bert Edwards elementary to play basketball.
Nick Guido is also survived by his parents, Joan and Peter, brother Nathan and sister Tessa.
