Trial centres on who supervised training exercise

Snippet:

SARNIA, ON - Trainer Terry Harrison appeared to be in a state of disbelief when a Point Edward firefighter became trapped beneath the ice during a training exercise that resulted in the firefighter’s death, a Sarnia court heard Tuesday.

Harrison, of Georgetown, Ont., is charged under the Occupational Health and Safety Act with failing to take reasonable precautions to protect a worker during the Jan. 30, 2010 exercise in the St. Clair River.

Firefighter Gary Kendall, 51, was trapped under the ice and died the following day in hospital after being pulled from the river with no vital signs.

Point Edward Fire Department Capt. David Dobson testified Tuesday that he heard Harrison say, “No, no, this can’t be happening.”
