Eyewitness account of Fairmont mudslide

About 600 people remain stranded by a mudslide that hit the Fairmont Hot Springs resort in southeastern B.C. on Sunday.

Crews are working to restore access to the area and clear the debris from the resort, north of Cranbrook.

The mudslide swept down a creek bed tearing across Mountainside Golf Course before rushing down Fairmont Creek Road, where Derek Bay lives.

He explains what he heard and saw, to Daybreak host Chris Walker.
