The woman who was found unresponsive underwater last weekend at Barber’s Hole on the Puntledge River has died.
The incident occurred around 5 p.m., Sunday, June 26.
Frances Theron was pulled from the water and given CPR before first responders arrived. Firefighters took over and attempted to revive her via an automated external defibrillator.
From there, Theron was transported via ambulance to St. Joseph’s General Hospital, then was airlifted to St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.
She was reported to have been removed from life support Wednesday night. The B.C. coroner’s office confirmed her death to The Record Thursday afternoon, saying more details would be released on Monday, July 5.
