GRAND FORKS, B.C. - The body of a 50-year-old Scottish tourist has been pulled from a southern B.C. river, ten days after he was swept over a waterfall.

RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says the man's body was located in the Kettle River, downstream from Cascade Falls, about 500 kilometres east of Vancouver.

Search and rescue teams recovered it on Monday afternoon.

The man and a retired couple from Christina Lake, B.C., were carried over the falls as they used inflatables to float down the Kettle River with a group of seven other people.

The bodies of the 74-year-old man and his 71-year-old wife were found shortly after the July 28 incident.

As officials ended the full scale search for the Scottish man last month they issued a warning urging caution on B.C. rivers still swollen from heavy rains in July. (CKOR)
