Craftsman Kyle Sinclair died after a "freak accident" while doing routine mechanical work on an armoured vehicle at Garrison Petawawa, CBC News learned Sunday.
His section commander told CBC News Sinclair, 27, was working on the armoured vehicle, called Coyote, in a building hangar when a "very rare, freak accident" happened. There was not an explosion and nothing fell on Sinclair, the section commander added.
Other soldiers, who are trained in CPR, rushed to help him but were unable to regain a pulse, DND confirmed. Sinclair died in hospital late Friday night.
The section commander said a private parade would be held on Monday in Sinclair's honour....
My heart goes out to all who know and love Craftsman Sinclair.
