UPDATE: The B.C. Coroners Service has identified the dead worker as Jeffrey Caron, 28, of Calgary.

One worker is dead, another in hospital after a retaining wall collapsed on them at a North Burnaby construction site.

The two men, who work for Surrey's J. Cote & Son Excavating, were in a trench laying pipe on Thursday morning, said WorkSafeBC.

Burnaby RCMP said their investigators concluded there was no "criminality in the death" and have handed the case over to WorkSafeBC, reported The Province.

The job safety agency will be looking at factors that could have led to the incident, including the condition of the equipment and training, WorkSafeBC's Megan Johnston told News 1130.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story named WorkSafeBC's spokeswoman as Megan Johnson. Her correct name is Megan Johnston.
