Coroner confirms identity of deceased worker

The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a male who was died in an industrial accident Monday afternoon in Kelowna.

Dejan Rasovic, 40, was fatally injured shortly after 1 p.m. while work on a dump truck at his residence, 3985 Fairwinds Court, in East Kelowna.

The BC Coroners Service and WorkSafeBC continue to investigate the accident.

Kelowna RCMP Cont. Kris Clark said Monday the accident wasn't a criminal matter at that stage so WorkSafe BC and the Coroner would handle the followup investigation.
