Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 03 Sep, 2019 07:42 PM

    SALMON ARM, B.C. - RCMP in British Columbia are searching for a man, presumed drowned, following a boating incident on Shuswap Lake east of Kamloops.

     

    Marine Search and Rescue from Sicamous, RCMP and provincial ambulance services answered a call about an incident involving two large speedboats on an arm of Shuswap Lake between Canoe and Sicamous on Sunday evening.

     

    The boats were travelling east in tandem when one of them lost control, sending a man and a woman into the water.

     

    People in the other boat pulled a 25-year-old woman from the water and police say she was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

     

    Mounties and Search and Rescue personnel searched extensively for the man, who has been identified as 33-year-old Ryan Hartmann, until 2 a.m. on Monday morning.

     

    RCMP say Hartmann is missing and presumed drowned, though local Search and Rescue continue to search the area with air support.

     

    Police have taken custody of the two speedboats as they investigate the factors that led to the incident.

     

    Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version said Shuswap Lake is west of Kamloops.
