UPDATE: Man’s body recovered from Squamish-area lake by RCMP dive team

Man was paddleboarding with friends when he fell into the lake

The RCMP dive team has recovered the body of a man who fell into a Squamish area lake on Sunday morning (Aug. 8).

According to Mounties, the man was paddle boarding with some friends and family when he fell into Alice Lake at about 9 a.m.. BC Parks closed the area to allow the diver team to search and the man’s body was found at about 8:15 p.m. Sunday. Alice Lake Provincial Park has since reopened.

“Our hearts go out to the family and friends of this man who was doing something he was enjoying,” said Cpl. Angela Kermer.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Squamish RCMP at 604-892-6100, or, if they wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or go to www.solvecrime.ca.
