City councillor from Lethbridge killed in avalanche while snowboarding


WATERTON — A city councillor from southern Alberta has died in an avalanche while snowboarding.

Wade Galloway, who was 37, was killed Saturday at Waterton Lakes National Park near the United States border.

The City of Lethbridge says in a statement that the first-term councillor had been with a friend when a wave of snow slid down a mountain.

The friend tried to resuscitate Galloway before going for help.

Searchers have not been able to recover his body because of bad weather and blowing snow.

Galloway, a married father of two children, was elected to Lethbridge city council last fall.
