Kelowna RCMP would like to thank the Kelowna Fire Department for their assistance on Okanagan Lake.
On July 19, at 9:58 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP received a report that an intoxicated 19-year-old female from Kelowna had gone running into Okanagan Lake.
Two local Mounties attempted to rescue the woman. The RCMP members tried to corral her and bring her back to shore when an altercation occurred as the female became combative.
The Kelowna RCMP members who were exhausted, clung to a swimming buoy and were picked up by the Kelowna Fire Department. The officers were transported to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment and released.
The woman returned to shore and was subsequently taken into custody. She could potentially face criminal charges.
The Kelowna RCMP thank the Kelowna Fire Department for for their assistance on Okanagan Lake.
