A 33 year old Calgary man has died after drowning in Cultus Lake.

Shortly before 6:00 pm on Saturday, August 13, 2022, Chilliwack RCMP and the BC Ambulance Service received reports of a man drowning in Cultus Lake near Entrance Bay. Witnesses reported that a 33 year old Calgary man had waded into the water with his friends when he entered deep water and became submerged. Emergency responders including members of Cultus Lake Fire and Rescue and Chilliwack Search and Rescue mobilized rescue efforts.

Tragically, the man was unable to swim and became submerged in deep water where he drowned, says Sergeant Krista Vrolyk, media spokesperson for the Chilliwack RCMP. Our thoughts and condolences go out to this man’s family and friends.

The man’s body was later recovered by emergency personnel. This matter remains under investigation by the Chilliwack RCMP and BC Coroners Service.
