A BC Ferries worker died last Friday after falling into the Fraser River.
In an email to Global News, spokesperson Deb Marshall said the employee was working in the fleet maintenance unit in Richmond when he fell into the water.
Police and search and rescue authorities recovered the body on Saturday.
“This is extremely distressing news for all of us and our hearts go out to his family and friends, to our employees who work at the fleet maintenance unit alongside this person, and to our entire BC Ferries family,” Marshall said.
