Bad weather is said to be the cause of a canoe overturning on Chain Lakes Thursday night.
Mounties in Slave Lake say two men were in the canoe at the time it overturned.
A 17 year old man was able to swim to shore and was taken to hospital with non life threatening injuries.
Sadly his 18 year old friend was not as lucky.
He was discovered yesterday – drowned in the water – after a full day of ground and aerial searches of the area.
His name is not being released.
