Sad news to report. In British Columbia, a tenth grade student from Percy Page High School died after a skiing accident while on a school ski trip.

At 4 p.m., the Edmonton public school district will hold a news conference where more details will be released. So far, the district’s spokeswoman, Jane Sterling, has said the student was injured on the ski hill and taken to Invermere Hospital by helicopter.

All other students will be returning home early from the field trip to Panorama.

More details to come.
