Roof collapses – kills woman
HALIBURTON – On Saturday January 11, 2013 at approximately 2:45 pm, Haliburton Highlands OPP responded to a fatality on Contau Lake Road in Gooderham, Municipality of Highlands East, Ontario.
A 64 year old female was cleaning the snow off the deck at her mother’s residence when the roof above her collapsed. Efforts by Haliburton EMS and Highlands East Fire Department to revive her were unsuccessful and she died as a result of her injuries.
The female has been identified as Bonnie Dewey of Gooderham, Ontario. At this time the cause of the incident appears to be the weight of the heavy snow and recent precipitation which caused the structure failure.
Contau Lake is situated approximately half way between Kinmount and Wilberforce.
