    A Whitehorse man has suffered a fatal skateboard fall over the weekend.


    28 year-old Robert Thompson was found injured on Hamilton Boulevard just before 6:00 a.m. on Sunday.  He was taken to Whitehorse General Hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 6:19 a.m. It appeared that Thompson had been riding eastward on his skateboard on a downhill stretch towards the Alaska Highway when he lost control.  He was not wearing any protective gear and an autopsy has confirmed that he suffered a fatal head injury.
