Drowning at Keyhole hotsprings

November 18, 2013

Andrew Mitchell

RCMP believe a 25-year-old Burnaby male found drowned in the Keyhole Falls hot springs on Friday (Nov. 15) had mixed alcohol with a prescription medication he was on. The incident is still under investigation with the BC Coroner's Service.


The police got a call on Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. Two males and a female had were at the site, when one of the males made a round-trip ticket to the vehicle. When he returned, he found the female attempting to assist the victim.


Pemberton Search and Rescue mobilized with a helicopter but there was no landing spot in the area and daylight was limited. As a result, RCMP and Search and Rescue hiked into the area to secure the body overnight, and brought it out the next day.


The path to the hot springs is steep and technical, about 250 vertical metres straight down from the 44km mark on the Lillooet Forest Service Road.


The death is still being investigated, but police believe that the victim may have had a reaction related to alcohol and the prescription medicine he was on.
This story is still developing
