CP Rail identifies workers killed in B.C. derailment

(Source: Calgary Herald, February 4, 2019)

CALGARY, Alberta ó The three Canadian Pacific Rail workers killed in a train derailment near the Alberta-B.C. border on Monday have been identified as a Calgary-based crew. Conductor Dylan Paradis, engineer Andrew Dockrell and trainee Daniel Waldenberger-Bulmer suffered fatal injuries when a westbound freight train left the tracks about 1 a.m. just east of Field, B.C., some 200 km (124 miles) west of Calgary. The accident prompted union leaders to demand action in the wake of a mounting death toll on railway workers. The train, which had three locomotives and 112 cars, left the tracks while crossing a bridge over the Kicking Horse River, plunging some 60 meters (197 feet) to the icy waters below.
