The B.C. Coroners Service have identified the name of a Saskatchewan man who died following a swimming incident in Mara Lake.
Larry Marzinzik, a spokesperson with the Coroners Service, reports Scott Kevin Hardy Glen, 24, of Saskatoon, Sask. was staying with friends on a rental houseboat moored at a marina near Sicamous.
“In the early morning hours of Aug. 4, (Glen) and a friend were swimming from the swim deck of the houseboat when Mr. Glen did not resurface.”
Glen’s friends immediately called for help and an immediate search yielded no results.
The RCMP dive team was brought in and, with assistance from Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue, the team was able to recover Glen’s body a short distance from the boat, “from about 15 metres of water.”
The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.
