Inquiry will delve into farm death 18-year-old last May

By Medicine Hat News on April 17, 2024.


A fatality inquiry has been ordered to examine a farm accident near Bow Island last year.

Carson Raymond Michael Cleaver, 18, died on May 8, 2023 as a result of the accident, according to a new list of matters slated for inquiries published this month by the Alberta Justice Ministry.

A fatality inquiry examines circumstances surrounding a death and can recommend legislative or operational changes to prevent future injury. They do not assign fault.

There is no set schedule for the review, done by a provincial court judge, to take place.

According to an obituary for Carson Cleaver-Bueckert, he was attending college in Calgary after high school but grew up on a family agricultural operation in the Burdett and Bow Island area.
