22-year-old man dies following ski hill accident in Quebec's Lac-Saint-Jean region

A 22-year-old man is dead following a fall at a ski hill in Quebec's Lac-Saint-Jean region.

Quebec provincial police say the accident occurred Friday afternoon when the victim tried to do a jump at a snow park in Hebertville, about 200 kilometres north of Quebec City.

The man, who wasn't wearing a helmet, was taken to hospital but did not survive.

Police are investigating the incident.

The death comes less than 48 hours after a 15-year-old girl died after attempting a jump from a ski chairlift Wednesday night in the Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec.
