Harrison Lake/Burnaby – The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of two men who died following a rafting incident on Harrison Lake on June 8, 2015.
They were Daniel Dale Reid, aged 23, and Gary Duong, aged 25, both of Vancouver.
Mr. Reid and Mr. Duong were two of about 14 persons on a raft on Harrison Lake on the afternoon of June 8. Both ended up in the water, and were later found not to have reached shore by swimming. They were reported missing at that time, but an immediate search of the area was not successful.
On June 18 and 19, the men, both deceased, were spotted by other recreational users on the lake and were recovered with the assistance of search-and-rescue and a local charter boat company.
The BC Coroners Service and RCMP are continuing to investigate these deaths.
The families of Mr. Reid and Mr. Duong have been notified of their deaths. On behalf of family members, the BC Coroners Service asks that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time.
