Sandy Bay RCMP Dealing With Unusual Sudden Death

Friday, July 22, 2005 at 15:44



Sandy Bay RCMP are investigating the mysterious death of a 33-year-old local man.


Officers were called yesterday afternoon to assist in locating three men who were trapped on a boat that had broken down.


After the boat stopped, one of the men swam to shore to summon assistance.


When officers arrived on the scene, they found two men in the boat — one of them was dead.


The Mounties say a fourth man, who had apparently also been in the boat, made it to shore himself and was found a short time later.


RCMP say the name of the deceased will not be released until notification of next of kin.
