The Yukon Coroner’s Service announced the death this afternoon.
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.
