UPDATE: Man identified in fatal incident on Harrison Lake

A family friend – who did not wish to named – has identified the victim in a fatal incident on Harrison Lake Wednesday evening as 30-year-old Gordon Dunn of Surrey. At this time, RCMP have not confirmed the victim’s identity, but have confirmed that RCMP responded to calls of a 30-year-old man in medical distress on Wednesday around 5 p.m.

The family friend says Dunn had a heart attack while riding a Sea-Doo on Harrison Lake, close to Rockwell Drive south of Killer’s Cove Marina – but the cause of death remains under investigation by BC Coroners Service.

Emergency responders were called by witnesses from the water and the victim was brought to shore where witnesses attempted CPR while waiting for first responders.

Kent Harrison Search and Rescue (KHSAR) were paged to the location near Rockwell Drive around 5:50 p.m., where they joined local ambulance and fire already on scene, attempting to resuscitate the victim.

Harrison Hot Springs Elementary was used as a landing area for a Medevac air ambulance, but the victim is reported to have died before reaching hospital.

A GoFundMe page called the Gordon Dunn Memorial Fund, has been set up to support the family with funeral and memorial costs.
