Another fatality in Creston this week, with a Mexican visitor drowning


Another tragedy in Creston this week, the same night a a fatal crash that killed two people including a 4 year old girl Monday.

Creston RCMP say a group of visitors from Mexico were jumping off a cliff into the Goat River, around the Canyon Lister Bridge area in Erickson, when one failed to resurface.

Police say the man wasn't a strong swimmer and got pulled down by the undertow.

Because of the danger of the fast flowing water, local search and rescue crews weren't able to retrieve the man...the Underwater Recovery Team from Vancouver had to be called in.

According to RCMP, it's not a recommended area to be in the water.
