SAINT JOHN – An inquest into the death of Yi Fan Wang has been scheduled for April 8-12 at the Sydney Street Courthouse in Saint John.

Wang, 17, died on Sept. 20, 2011, from injuries sustained during a public swim session at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre in Saint John.

The Chinese exchange student had only been studying in Saint John for two weeks prior to the incident.

Chief Coroner Gregory Forestell and a jury will publicly hear evidence from witnesses to determine the facts surrounding the death.

The jury will have the opportunity to make recommendations aimed at preventing deaths under similar circumstances, but may not make any finding of legal responsibility.
