Engineer Enrick Gagnon lost his life when the train he was driving was derailed.

Engineer Enrick Gagnon would not have had a chance of stopping the train he was driving along the winding track north of Sept-Îles by the time he realized a landslide of rock was blocking the railbed early on Thursday morning, November 6. The train would have required at least two kilometres of track to come to a halt.
