Korbin South’s family is circulating a petition to put up a fence along the river. His aunt Sherri Morin says a fence is the best way to prevent this horrific experience for someone else.
According to Morin, this wasn’t the first time Burk’s Falls council received a request to build a fence along the river. She says it was denied a few years about because it wasn’t a concern at the time and it would affect the snowmobile trail.
Morin and the rest of the family will be continuing to push for signatures. She is asking residents to watch out for people wearing black Korbin’s Fence t-shirts.
Korbin died last week, after falling into the rapidly moving Magnetawan River in Burk’s Falls.
