UPDATE: Texas Teen, Woman Killed When Storm Hits Camp
ELY - Police in Canada have identified the two campers with a Boy Scouts of America group killed when a fierce storm hit the U.S.-Canadian border as a teenage boy and a female volunteer from Texas.
The Ontario Provincial Police on Thursday identified the two who died as 13-year-old Christian James Sanchez of Lewisville, Texas, and 39-year-old Rorth Lac of Carrollton, Texas. A post-mortem examination is scheduled Friday.
Authorities say the group was camping on Basswood Lake in Quetico Provincial Park in Canada when strong winds blew through early Thursday. The Boy Scouts say two other campers were hurt but their injuries are not life-threatening.
Lake County Sheriff Carey Johnson says the two victims were killed when a tree fell on their tents.
Canadian authorities are investigating but say the incident is not suspicious.
