A tragic accident has claimed a child’s life on Kalamalka Lake.
RCMP responded to an incident on the lake in Coldstream at 6 pm Monday.
“A family from North Vancouver had been boating on the lake and was returning to dock. As the adult driver turned the boat, a six year old child fell over board and was struck by a part of the boat. The child was rushed to the pier on Kalamalka Lake to meet emergency personnel and, despite all efforts, the child died of the injuries,” says Cpl. Tania Finn.
RCMP is assisting the BC Coroner Service in the investigation, and the family is receiving support from victim services.
