The Quebec coroner’s office is confirming the identity of the woman killed in a landslide in the province’s Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region last weekend.
Pascale Racine, 44, was one of two people who died last Saturday in Rivière-Éternité, Que., about 260 kilometres northeast of Quebec City.
Earlier in the week, authorities identified the other victim killed after heavy rains triggered landslides and flooding as 48-year-old Pascal Heon.
Police divers found the two bodies on Tuesday evening.
