Man identified after boating death

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.

The friend reported the incident the next day when he was able to reach a less remote location, but Mr. Collicutt had died at the scene.
