The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a boating incident on Heart Lake near Hedley on July 20.
He is Clair Stacey Collicutt, aged 46, from Keremeos.
Collicutt and a friend were out on a small boat on Heart Lake, a remote lake north of Hedley, on the afternoon of July 20 when the boat overturned. The friend made it to shore, but Collicutt failed to make it.
