The Coroner's Service is expected to release the name today of the jet-skier killed in Okanagan Lake on the weekend.
The 47-year-old Kelowna man was riding the personal water craft after sunset Saturday and crashed into a log boom near Trader's Cove on the west side of the lake. Boaters nearby heard the impact and found the man in the water.
He likely died instantly from head injuries, emergency officials said. Firefighters performed CPR as they drove him by boat to the Kelowna Yacht Club.
It isn't clear how long the man had lived in the area. Police believe he may have been speeding.
"At 8:30 at night it starts to get darker out. Visibility is likely a factor," said spokesman Const. Kris Clark.
The jet ski was not rented, suggesting the man owned or borrowed it.
