The holiday season has brought heartache for a New Brunswick family that saw their son die after he was badly injured at his workplace.

Wanny Pelletier, 17, sustained a major leg injury while at a lumber and pellet mill just three days before Christmas.

In a statement, Manon Arsenault of WorkSafeNB confirmed his death and says they are investigating.

 “The investigation will help WorkSafeNB determine how the fatality may have been prevented and whether there were any violations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act or its regulations,” the statement reads.“WorkSafeNB expresses its sincere condolences to Mr. Pelletier’s family, friends and co-workers.”
