A person has been hit and killed by a train at White Rock Beach, police said.

The body of a male was located Friday around 11:45 a.m. on the railroad tracks south of Bay Street past the end of the promenade on West Beach.

“White Rock RCMP, with support from CN Police, are continuing their investigation but can confirm that trauma to the body is consistent with this individual being struck by a train,” a statement said.
