Two 17 year-old Calgary twins who died Saturday morning have been identified.
Jordan and Evan Caldwell gained access to the Winsport Olympic Park in Calgary late Friday night along with six friends.
Their goal was to take their own sled down the park’s Bobsled track. Half way down, the eight teens collided with a gate that separated the Bobsled and Luge tracks.
Police arrived on the scene early Saturday morning to what they are describing as a “chaotic scene”.
The Caldwell twins were pronounced dead at the scene while the six others were rushed to a nearby hospital.
WinSport CEO Barry Heck spoke at a press conference saying “Today is the most tragic day in WinSport’s history”.
We would like to express our sincerest condolences to the families of the victims involved. Our thoughts & prayers are with the families.
