A participant in a Paris charity event died on Saturday.
County of Brant OPP officers assisted paramedics who responded to a call at the War Horse Challenge Mud Run about a man with no vital signs. The officers learned the 63-year-old Kitchener man had been competing when he went into distress.
Attempts to revive the man were unsuccessful. He was transported to Brantford General Hospital and pronounced dead.
The OPP remained on the scene for several hours working with the organizers of the Canadian Cancer Society fundraising event to investigate the incident held on Tigercat Industries property on Consolidated Drive.
