An investigation is underway following the drowning death of a 20-year old man at Stafford Lake on Monday (July 27).

Coaldale RCMP, the Coaldale and Coalhurst Fire Departments, and the Lethbridge Fire Water Rescue Team all responded to Stafford Lake just before 5:00 p.m. on Monday (July 27). The lake is located about 10 minutes east of Coaldale, south of Highway 3.

A drone was used to locate the deceased man on the south part of Stafford Lake. The Lethbridge Water Rescue Team was able to bring his body to the shore just after 9:00 p.m.

The Calgary Medical Examiners Office will lead the investigation into the man’s death. His name will not be released.

Coaldale RCMP are also reminding recreational water area users to always use safety devices, like life jackets and personal flotation devices.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
