WorkSafe B.C., police and the B.C. Coroners Service are investigating after a mill worker died at a Nanaimo area mill.
37 year old Chris Fletcher was killed at the Harmac Pacific pulp mill early Friday morning.
He had been working with a bulldozer on a wood chip pile when the pile collapsed.
The mill was shut down and workers sent home after the incident but the mill is back up and running now.
Harmac has more than 300 full-time employees and runs two production lines.
