PEACHLAND, B.C. — The body of a Calgary man who did not resurface after jumping into Okanagan Lake near Peachland has been recovered.
Samson Adedeji, 34, jumped from a boat near Squally Point, south of Rattlesnake Island, at about 3:45 p.m. on June 18.
RCMP said Monday they located his body in 64 metres of water about a half a kilometre from where he entered the lake. Sonar and a remotely operated underwater vehicle from the RCMP underwater recovery team were used in the recovery.
‘This was a tragic and sad event to start our summer season here in the sunny Okanagan,” said Const. Mike Della-Paolera Kelowna Media Relations Officer. “Our condolences to the man’s family and friends during this time.”
Adedeji had been vacationing in the Okanagan with five friends when he drowned.
