Coroner ID’s boater who died Sunday

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died in that boating crash on Kootenay Lake near Riondel Sunday.

He was David Jamieson of Fruitvale.

The 30 year old was one of four people aboard a seven-metre aluminium power boat on the lake.

It ran into rocks at the base of a steep rock face around 8 pm near the Riondel ferry terminal. Jamieson died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.

Creston RCMP say they are investigating the cause. Corporal Monte Taylor says speed and alcohol have not been ruled out.
