Drowning, it can happen to anyone.

It can happen to anyone, even someone who would be considered a strong athlete. So I encourage people don’t swim alone.

Very sad, indeed. If anyone reading knows water enthusiasts, please remind them to be aware and protect themselves.

While this seems likely a simple accident - it is an absolute certainty there will be more tragic drownings over here on Okanagan lake.

We live with a 'front row' view of boaters and craft on North Okanagan near Vernon. It is every, single, day. PWC's and surfers totally absent of personal floatation (zero lifejackets). Tow sports behind the boat, high-speed PWC operation and paddle-boarders in the middle of the lake (basically invisible to boats) at all times of day - zero lifejackets.
