RCMP say a logger who died in a workplace incident south of Kitimat last week was a 46-year-old man from Terrace.

Police say they were called to a remote logging operation along the Douglas Channel near Eagle Bay last Thursday afternoon. They say it appears the man was struck by a tree and died of his injuries. 

WorkSafeBC and the coroner also attended. 

The worksite was very remote and extremely difficult to access and police are thanking marine rescue volunteers and the victim's co-workers for their efforts and professionalism.

The incident is still under investigation, but the RCMP do say they are not treating it as suspicious.
