A day on the water turned to tragedy for two friends who were kayaking along the Cheakamus River just north of Squamish Saturday, according to Squamish RCMP.

In a statement to Global News, RCMP confirm one of the two friends ‘passed away suddenly’ while kayaking, but did not outright confirm if this sudden death was a drowning.

Mounties offered little else when pressed for details, only adding efforts to resuscitate the victim were not successful.
