On July 21 at 5:28 p.m., the Princeton RCMP responded Bromley Rock to assist BC Ambulance with a possible drowning victim. A 20 year old had attempted to swim across the Similkameen River when the fast flowing water pulled him under.  The male was under water for approximately 3 minutes before several of his friends located and rescued him from the water, CPR was started by his friends and continued until the Ambulance arrived to take over. After 30-40 minutes of CPR the victims pulse had returned. The male was transported to the Princeton Hospital and then to Kelowna Hospital where he remains in stable but critical condition.

On July 27 at approximately 5:45 p.m., Princeton RCMP received a report of a suspicious occurrence in the area of Allison Ave., and Asp Street in Princeton. Two children stated they were aggressively approached by a female who attempted to speak with them. The children did not know the female and went home and advised their mother of the incident. The female was a passenger in a silver car with a male driver. The intentions of the occupants of the vehicle are unknown at this time.

The RCMP would like to remind parents to speak with their children and to educate them on how to react when approached by strangers.

If anyone should have further information and/or knowledge of the incident they are asked to contact the Princeton RCMP Detachment at 250-295-6911.
