Man drowns in Swift Current Creek May 30

On Sunday, May 30 around 5 p.m, Shaunavon RCMP was called to a recreation area near the hamlet of Simmie, SK, where an adult male swimmer was reported to be in distress.

Initial investigation determined that a 21-year-old man had been swimming in the Swift Current Creek with friends. He had jumped off a bridge, went underwater and failed to resurface.

RCMP officers, the Swift Current Fire Department and Ministry of Environment Conservation Officers searched for the male using boats. At 7:15 p.m., the body of the male was located and recovered. The deceased is from Alberta and his family has been notified.

The Saskatchewan Coroners Service is now investigating.
