REGINA – A coroner’s jury ruled Thursday it cannot determine the cause of death of a Regina woman who plunged 10 storeys down a laundry chute at a downtown hotel in 2015.
The jury of three men and three women deliberated for five hours at the inquest into the death of Nadine Machiskinic, 29.
Machiskinic was found unresponsive at the bottom of the chute at the Delta Hotel and was later pronounced dead in hospital.
The jury made just one recommendation — that laundry chutes in hotels should always be kept locked and only ever be accessible to staff.
Machiskinic’s family has questioned how she fit through the opening of the laundry chute, which was only 53 centimetres wide, and why it took police 60 hours to launch an investigation.
