Yet Another Harrison Lake Tragedy

Harrison Lake, BC (CBC/Global/Star FM) – One person is missing and another nearly drowned at B.C.’s Harrison Lake on Tuesday.

Harrison Search and Rescue spokesperson Neil Brewer said four people were in a boat when one jumped out to take a swim and got into trouble. At least one individual jumped in to help and also got into trouble.

A forestry boat was able to rescue one person, who nearly drowned and was taken to a hospital. The other person remains missing.

Brewer said it’s not clear which individual — the person who initially got into trouble or the person who attempted a rescue —  is missing.

The search for the missing person continues.

Harrison Lake has already been the site of three drowning deaths this summer.

Two Vancouver men — Daniel Dale Reid, 23, and Gary Duong, 25, — were reported missing on June 8 when they didn’t show up at the shore after a swim.  Their bodies were discovered 10 days later.

On Friday evening, a woman in her 20s also drowned, according to the B.C. Coroners Service. Her identity has not been released at this time.
