Guard found dead at construction site near Kelowna
A security guard was found dead at a condo construction site near Kelowna in the B.C. Interior on the weekend, butthe RCMP say they're almost certain no foul play was involved.
The 24-year-old man went missing while policing the site in Westside, across Okanagan Lake from Kelowna, RCMP Const. Julie Rattee said Monday.
Another security guard arriving for the day shift on Sunday couldn't find him and he called for a search, Rattee said.
"An object was located on the bottom of the canal, but there was poor visibilityand they were unable to confirm there was in fact a body underneath."
TheRCMP dive team was called in and a body was located around 7 p.m. Sunday.
Police believe the man's death was accidental, Rattee said.
The investigation is being taken over by the province's workers compensation board and the B.C. Coroners Service.
