Canadian woman dies after getting stuck in clothing donation bin

Canadian woman dies after getting stuck in clothing donation bin

The death, which police believe was unintentional, follows a string of similar fatal accidents.

"We're all just devastated". Her arm became stuck in the bin when a step stool she was on gave way under her.

It has been suggested that the design of the bins is responsible for the people becoming trapped inside. The Vancouver area has seen the majority of incidents, although deaths have occurred in Calgary and Cambridge, Ont.

Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu says officers were called to a downtown location early Tuesday morning after receiving calls that the 35-year-old woman was stuck inside the bin.

According to The Canadian Press, seven Canadians have died this way since 2015. They remember her as a bubbly and friendly face around the neighbourhood. Ventura blinked back tears when discussing Chrystal's tragic death.

The manufacturer of clothing donation bins used by charities, Rangeview Fabricating, says it has stopped producing the metal containers so it can focus on modifying the existing containers to improve safety.

"We are saddened at this bad and tragic incident", media relations and communications manager Daniel Koren said in an email to CBC Toronto.

The District of West Vancouver sealed donation bins in that city and said it was looking at options to make them safer or remove them altogether.

Papineau, according to a friend identified only as Victoria, often went to retrieve items from donation bins, which she then distributed to others. Being held upside down for long periods can also be fatal in itself; the victim can asphyxiate from the pressure of their organs weighing down on their lungs, or they can suffer a stroke as blood pools in their head.

Several Metro Vancouver municipalities are choosing to shut down the bins after the death of a man in West Vancouver last month. Many of people who volunteered to design a retrofit solution are students and they deserve to be paid, he explained.

'Shut them all down and get a designer and redesign these things'.
