The B.C. Coroners service says a Kamloops man died Sunday morning after a sliding accident at Sun Peaks ski resort. Coroner Barb McLintock says the man, in his 20's, was sliding on a crazy carpet and crashed into a support tower. McLintock says he was taken to Royal Inland Hospital but died from his injuries. It's still unclear if he was in a marked sliding area or was out of bounds.

Stranded hikers rescued

Three hikers have Kamloops Fire and Rescue to thank for getting them to safety Sunday night.

The fire department was the first to arrive and crews managed to hike in nearby where the three where stranded. Using flash lights they managed to lead the three hikers out to safety.
