Victoria father dies after fall at Richmond trampoline park
RCMP are investigating after a father from Victoria died at a trampoline park in Richmond Saturday.
Police say the 46-year-old was performing a series of acrobatic manoeuvres before a fall that caused serious injury and cardiac arrest.
Identified on social media by family and friends as Jay Greenwood, the victim was visiting Extreme Air Park on Triangle Road with his two children.
The facility said in a statement posted on the front door that it is devastated over the death and that customer safety is its highest priority.
In an emailed statement to CTV News, the company said staff called 911 and followed the dispatcher's instructions not to move a person with a potentially serious injury until emergency crews arrived.
The representative also said he is a father himself, and he is heartbroken for Greenwood's children.
"I watched the CCTV footage and it showed a loving and gentle father who was not just present with his children but engaging with them," the email read.
Friends and family expressed their condolences on social media for Greenwood, who was a contractor and entrepreneur.
One woman claiming to be his sister posted a photo of Greenwood and his daughter, saying her brother just died.
His friend Dwight Fengstad wrote Greenwood died doing what he loves—spending time with his daughters.
