18-year-old Drowns at Pasadena Beach



On Thursday afternoon the RCMP responded to a report that a man had drowned in Deer Lake across from Pasadena Beach.


An 18-year-old is deceased after a canoe, carrying two men, had capsized in the water. A kayaker in the area heard the calls for help and paddled towards the men.

One man made it safely to shore and the other did not.


His body was recovered by Deer Lake Ground Search and Rescue and was transported to Western Memorial Hospital in Corner Brook.


Both men were wearing life jackets.


The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is engaged and the investigation is continuing.
