Jason Greenwood, 46, died after doing a front-flip into a foam pit at an Extreme Air Park in the city on Jan. 24, 2018. He had asked his family to take a video of the somersault, the report said, but didn't resurface after the jump.

Greenwood, a stepfather to three children, later died in hospital. His death sparked a lawsuit against the park and official recommendations that trampoline parks be regulated in B.C. for the first time, due to the potential public safety risk.

BC Coroner ' s Service spokesman Andy Watson said it’ s possible an investigation into this case Anyone at the park must sign a waiver stating they understand the inherent dangers of trampoline use, but Photos. Jay Greenwood, seen here, died following an accident at a B . C . trampoline park .

The report released Tuesday found Greenwood landed head-first after bouncing off a trampoline into the foam pit during a visit to the park with two children. When Greenwood didn't reappear, his family and bystanders began to dig through the metre-deep pit looking for him.

"The scene was very chaotic with a dozen or more people in and out of the foam pit and people still playing nearby," the report reads.

Air park staff were alerted to the situation when Greenwood was found, unresponsive and upside down in the pit. The report said witnesses who phoned 911 got conflicting instructions: one responder told one caller Greenwood shouldn't be moved, while another responder said the opposite.

Once firefighters arrived, it took 21 minutes to remove Greenwood from the pit. An injury to his cervical spine had damaged his spinal cord, which stopped his breathing. The report also found Greenwood had a "moderate" level of alcohol in his system but did not say whether that was a factor in his death.

Parents of 12-year-old drowning victim sue B.C. over safety concerns at man-made lake

  Parents of 12-year-old drowning victim sue B.C. over safety concerns at man-made lake The parents of a 12-year-old girl who died after being sucked into a drain pipe at the bottom of a man-made lake in northeastern B.C. are charging ahead with a lawsuit against the park, city and province, claiming the "hazardous" pool was kept open for too long. Brandie and Todd Park claim the people who ran Rotary Lake in Dawson Creek, B.C., failed to make sure the area was safe, despite knowing a drainpipe large and strong enough to drag a child below the surface lay on the lake floor."I have no answers on why it happened," said Brandie Park, Beverly's mother, speaking over the phone from Dawson Creek on Monday.

The report said "a more timely medical aid response with respiratory support" could have prevented Greenwood's death.

It also found none of the three staff members working at the park that day were trained in first aid or CPR, nor had they been given instructions on how to respond to an emergency — other than to phone 911.

Trampoline parks have existed for the better part of a decade but have not been regulated in Canada. Technical Safety B.C. (TSBC) , the province's regulator of amusement devices, called on the province to start regulating the parks after Greenwood's death and two separate incidents involving four-year-old children.

The B.C. government agreed.

The coroner's report said it supports the TSBC's advice and did not make any further recommendations to prevent similar deaths.

Greenwood's wife and his three young stepchildren are named as plaintiffs in a lawsuit against Extreme Air Park Inc., filed in B.C. Supreme Court last year.

The company filed a response denying any negligence, breach of duty of care or failure to warn and said Greenwood signed a long waiver acknowledging the dangers of the park before participating in its activities.
