A boating trip turned tragic over the weekend. 

RCMP say three men were on Family Lake on June 23 and returning to the community of Little Grand Rapids when their boat broke down.

While attempting to fix the motor, one of the men fell into the water and did not resurface. One of the other men jumped into the water to try and pull the drowning man to safety but was unsuccessful. 

The men rowed their boat back to the community to get help. Community members and band Constables returned to the area and found the 50-year-old male deceased in the water.

RCMP attended the scene and helped recover the body. 

An autopsy was performed confirming the male drowned.
