One man dead after kayak flips in Deep Cove: Mounties

A 70-year-old man has died after a kayak overturned in Deep Cove Saturday, the North Shore RCMP tells CityNews.

Two people — a father and a son — were in the kayak when it flipped.

“It was a double kayak,” Staff Sgt. Doug Trousdell said.

“It was the older gentleman, the father, who’s a 70-year-old male, that died.”

Trousdell says the son was rescued.

The BC Coroners’ Service is now in charge of the file, Trousdell says.
