SICAMOUS, B.C. — A 23-year-old New Zealand woman has died after she and three friends jumped from a bridge in Sicamous, B.C.
 
 
RCMP say it happened at around 2 a.m. Wednesday when all four people leaped from the bridge, 20 metres above the channel connecting Shuswap and Mara lakes, 75 kilometres north of Vernon.
