Yesterday afternoon, a 50-year-old man passed away while attempting to hike the Grouse Grind trail.
North Shore Search and Rescue and emergency were called to the scene to attend to the man who was having chest pains but they were unable to help him.
This unfortunate incident has happened before and should be preventable. The Grouse Grind is a grueling, intense exercise for even the moderately healthy individuals. Anyone with a history of heart problems shouldn’t attempt it out of precaution.
Our sympathies to the man’s family.
