A 65-year-old Edmonton man is dead after the canoe he was in flipped in Isle Lake Sunday, RCMP say.
Evasnburg RCMP said in a news release Tuesday that reports of a police drowning came in around 3 p.m. near the Summer Village of South View at Isle Lake.
Preliminary investigation shows the canoe turned over in the water from the wake of a passing motor boat. About a half hour later, another boat helped pull two people out of the water and took them to shore.
A 64-year-old woman survived but the 65-year-old man was pronounced deceased on scene.
Police say the names of those involved will not be released.
South View is about 90 kilometres west of Edmonton.
