West Shore RCMP are investigating a report of a 29 year old female who was injured after being pushed over a 40 foot cliff into the water at Thetis Lake, View Royal.
On May 19, 2019 at approximately 3:30 pm the victim was hiking near the first beach cliff face when she met up with a group of three unknown females who were drinking alcohol. The victim was looking over the cliff when someone pushed her causing her to fall into the water 40 feet below.
The three females are described as Caucasian, 20-30 years old, two with brown hair and one with blonde hair. They were wearing bathing suits and sunglasses. There may have been witnesses in the area including a male who offered to help the victim.
“Fortunately the victim was able to swim to shore and later received medical attention for her injuries,” says Cpl. Chris Dovell of the West Shore RCMP. “Police are seeking witnesses or the person responsible to come forward to speak with investigators.”
