An Ontario-based manufacturer of clothing donation bins has ceased production of a particular model following deaths in Toronto and West Vancouver.
Rangeview Fabricating Inc., a Hamilton, Ont. company that supplies bins to charities across North America, said it stopped manufacturing one of its models after a man was found unconscious near Ambleside Park in Vancouver late last month. The 34-year-old had gotten stuck in the bin’s opening, and did not survive his injuries.
Another women lost her life on Tuesday this week after being found trapped in a similar box in Toronto’s Bloorcourt Village neighbourhood.
Rangeview Fabricating Inc., shared with media that it’s no longer producing the model in which the people were trapped. In light of the Toronto incident, the company said it’ll be sending a video to all the charities that use its donation bins to show them how to cut the metal bars that cause the doors to pinch. Rangeview Fabricating Inc., said that it plans to work with students at the University of British Columbia to come up with a new prototype which will ensure public safety.
