Burnaby RCMP and the BC Coroners Service are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding an 8-year old girl’s death this past weekend.

At around 2 pm on Saturday, police responded to reports that a girl had fallen out of a high-rise apartment window building in the 3700-block of Bartlett Court.

Upon their arrival, police confirmed the little girl died as result of her injuries.

“Investigators do not believe that the death is suspicious in nature and instead is a tragic incident in which the girl fell from a window,” said Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Daniela Panesar.

Panesar said Burnaby RCMP’s victim services continue to provide support to the deceased girl’s family members who have asked for privacy at this time.
