RCMP investigating possible drowning in Pictou County

The young man jumped into the water at Park Falls, but didn't resurface.

The RCMP are investigating a possible drowning in Pictou County.

Cpl. Andrew Joyce said a group of people were swimming Friday afternoon at Park Falls, a popular swimming location in Sutherlands River, when a young man jumped into the water and didn't surface.

Friends started looking for him as someone else called 911 just after 3:30 p.m., Joyce said.

The location has a swimming area and a place where people dive or jump, he said.

The RCMP underwater recovery team is on the scene, along with firefighters from Thorburn and New Glasgow, and paramedics.

RCMP are asking people to stay away from the area while they conduct their search.

“We'll be there for a while this evening,” Joyce said.
