By TIMOTHY BECKNER Reporter|Posted February 13, 2018 05:12:38The young woman who fell off a cliff near the Canadian border died of her injuries after her family told her it was dangerous, according to her sister.
The young man was reportedly at the Canadian-U.S. border when he fell from the cliff last week, according, according the sister of the woman who died.
The Canadian government said on Friday it is providing the family with $10,000 in compensation for the girl’s family, as well as other support, including an extended stay at a Canadian hospital.
The woman fell about 1,000 feet from the side of a road near the border fence near Lecanto, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of Vancouver, the Canadian National Railway Co. said.
It was not immediately clear how the woman fell from a cliff.
It is the first known death in the U.S., Canada’s national border crossing, since the U and Y border was reopened in the early 1990s, according in the statement from the Canadian government.
It said the man’s family is cooperating with authorities.
