Separate water accidents in southern Alberta claims lives of two men
GHOST LAKE — A young man is dead after five people jumped from a bridge in southern Alberta.
RCMP were called late Sunday afternoon to Ghost Lake, northwest of Calgary, where medical workers say a 20-year-old man was seen diving into the lake from the bridge on Highway 1A.
He never surfaced and his friends called 911.
Two recreational divers who happened to be in the area found the man and brought him to shore, but he died at the scene.
In a separate accident, a 35-year-old Calgary man died after a raft he was riding with four other people flipped on a waterfall on the Highwood River west of Longview.
Officials say the victim was unresponsive when they got to him and he never regained consciousness.
