Another Drowning at a Popular Beach -- Police say alcohol likely factor


A 44-year-old man from out-of-province is the latest drowning victim in Kalamalka Lake. Vernon RCMP say they were called to the dock at Kal Beach just before ten pm Wednesday night for a report of a person calling for help. Police learned that two men had been on the dock and one decided to go for a swim. When he did not resurface, the second man called for help. Police say Vernon Search and Rescue found the body of the victim in only six-to-eight feet of water. They say alcohol was a likely factor. The man was in the Valley picking fruit and indications are he may be from Newfoundland.
