On April 21st, 2017 there was a near-drowning incident at the Mission Leisure Centre.

Lifeguards removed a young international student from the pool and administered CPR. The young man was then transferred into ambulatory and hospital care.

It is with heavy hearts that we share that the young man has now passed away.

Both the District of Mission and the Mission Public School District extend their heartfelt condolences to the family, who have asked for privacy at this time. We also offer our support to anyone involved or impacted by the incident.
