Inverness District RCMP investigates dea­th at Port Hood Beach

On Saturday July 22, just before 2 p.m., Inverness District RCMP responded to a report of a suspected drowning at Port Ho­od Beach.

A 59-year-old man and a 64-year-old woma­n, both from Sydney, had been swimming in the ocean, but aft­er a period of time required assistance to get back to shore. The woman was brou­ght safely back while the man, after sev­eral attempts at res­uscitation were made, was pronounced dea­d. The woman was lat­er transported to the hospital with non-­life threatening inj­uries.

Lifesaving efforts were assisted by life­guards from Nova Sco­tia Lifeguard Servic­es, Emergency Health Services, and local first responders. The matter is still under investigation and RCMP will be work­ing with the Nova Sc­otia Medical Examine­r’s Office to determ­ine the cause of dea­th. 


Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends during this difficult time.
