VANCOUVER – A woman riding a motorcycle Monday morning during a stunt scene for “Deadpool 2” near Canada Place has died.

She crashed through a plate-glass window at the ground floor of the Shaw Tower.

Nathan Kramchynski works on the seventh floor of the Shaw Tower and watched from the window.

“She lost control. She kind of weaved through, almost hit a pedestrian. Looking down from the 7th floor, you can only see so far.. It was like she was going full-throttle and then there’s a building there. It was pretty intense.”

He says the emergency response was very fast.

The woman was loaded onto an ambulance and it remained at the scene for 15 to 20 minutes before leaving with no sirens.

The VPD and WorkSafeBC are investigating at the scene.

WorkSafeBC has five officers there, looking for occupational health and safety issues as well as looking into the cause of the death.
