The search continued Monday for the bodies of three youth presumed drowned in that canoeing tragedy on Slocan Lake Saturday.
RCMP Sgt Darryl Little says a helicopter was used again today at New Denver.
Little says the water is very cold -confirmed at just 34F – 1C – and in parts it’s 450-feet deep …and there is a limit to how long each of the 8 divers can operate.
He says they will take stock and re-evaluate this afternoon.
The missing youth are 15 year old Jule Wiltshire-Padfield, 18 year old Skye Donnet and 21 year old Hayden Kyle.
They were in a canoe with 19 year old Lily Harmer-Taylor when it capsized.
She died Saturday night after being found unconscious in the over-turned boat.
