Kelowna Mounties are looking for photos and video of a fight that left a Kelowna man severely injured.

RCMP and BC Ambulance Services were called to the 200 block of Bernard Avenue Nov. 30 at approximately 2:22 a.m. after receiving a report that a man had been injured and required medical assistance.

Frontline members were able to speak to several witnesses at the scene and confirmed an altercation took place between the two men, according to an RCMP media release. One man was transported to the Kelowna General Hospital for his injuries.

“Police have identified all parties involved in the incident and the investigation remains ongoing with their co-operation,” Const. Lesley Smith with Kelowna RCMP said in the release.

James Reid has been identified as the man in the altercation through family and an online fundraising campaign.

In the early moments in the aftermath, it wasn't clear if Reid would come back from the incident.

On the latest GoFundMe update, Reid's family said he was improving daily.

"He is able to talk with us and walk around a bit though the nurses don’t really want him to be up much," reads the update. "He’s quite confused about why he’s here and his memory has been compromised. This will be a big part of his future recovery and rehabilitation. Family has been with him 24/7 and we’re feeling very optimistic."

Kelowna RCMP are asking anyone who may have recorded this incident on video or took any photos to please contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
