We inaccurately reported last night that an injured skater had passed away. We confirmed today that she is in critical condition.

We are terribly sorry for our error and misinformation. Our deepest thoughts and prayers remain with the family.

We will continue to conduct a thorough review of the circumstances around the accident, and of all safety processes and practices.  Helmets are being made available today to ice skaters at no cost.

The ice ribbon will remain open during the investigation. Any future updates will be posted on the City’s website.
