GRAND FORKS, B.C. - The B-C Coroners Service has identified an 11-year-old boy who was crushed to death by a falling tree at a summer camp.

He is Richard Fehr of Christina Lake, and he was attending a summer session at Pines Bible Camp north of Grand Forks when a windstorm hit last Friday.

Many trees came down, including one that hit the boy's cabin.
