He was Jacob George Setah, 18, of Hanceville — a hamlet near Williams Lake.

Setah jumped and was severely injured. He was treated in hospital, but later died of his injuries.

Independent Investigations Officers are investigating the case. The organization is called to probe cases of death or injury involving police.
