Dive Team Finds Body of Unknown Male in Henderson Lake

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The body of an unknown male who witnesses say disappeared into Henderson Lake Wednesday night, was recovered by the Lethbridge Fire Department Dive Team Thursday morning.

 

Fire and EMS Platoon Chief Ken Mercer stated that two witnesses called 911 around 11:27-pm, after they saw the man go under the surface of the water. He added that they did the right thing by calling for help and not going into the water, as Henderson is extremely murky with almost zero visibility, meaning you need to have significant training to attempt such a rescue. Mercer explained that their divers searched by feel because it's so difficult to see.

 

When emergency crews arrived they conducted a search on the water where the male was last seen, but were not able to locate him and a K9 search was also unsuccessful.

 

At that point they decided to hold off the search until the morning, so divers could be brought in.

 

Regional Police will continue to investigate and will not release further details until the man has been identified and his family is contacted.
