File # 2021-2962 Osoyoos

The RCMP are investigating after a man drowned in Osoyoos Lake.

On June 29, 2021 at 4:42 p.m., the Osoyoos RCMP received a request for assistance from their first responding partners after a man was found unresponsive in Osoyoos Lake.

A 31 year-old man from Chilliwack, BC was in the shallow water at Nk’Mip RV Park playing with his young child when others noticed the child alone and the man missing. Friends and family quickly located the man unresponsive in the lake. Life saving measures were initiated by his friends and others in the area and continued by first responders. Sadly, he passed away.

The BC Coroners Service is also investigating the man’s unexpected death, in an effort to determine how, where, when and by what means the man died. Due to the privacy of the deceased, his name will not be released.
