A 54-year-old Chilliwack woman found unresponsive close to the CN tracks west of Broadway on Tuesday was transported to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The woman was discovered by two people walking near the tracks.
Chilliwack RCMP were called to the scene at approximately 3: 30 p.m., according to spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck.
Mounties began CPR on the woman until paramedics arrived. She was transported to Chilliwack General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
It appears that no train was involved in the incident as emergency personnel contacted CN to notify them to stop trains.
Police say the incident also does not appear to be suspicious.
"It does not appear at this time that there is anything suspicious involving this incident; however, police are making further enquiries this morning to confirm this," Wolbeck said in a statement.
"If we determine that this was a non-suspicious death, further communication will be coming from the BC Coroner Service regarding identity."
