“While we cannot provide further specifics, investigators have determined the incident did not occur as was originally reported and suspects are no longer being sought in relation to this matter,” Cst. Nancy Saggar.
On May 19th, a 29-year-old woman reported that she was hiking near a beach cliff face at Thetis Lake when she encountered a group of three unknown women who had been drinking alcohol.
According to the original account, she turned to look at the view over the cliff when someone pushed her, causing her to fall down into the water 40 feet below.
Today, Cst. Saggar told Victoria Buzz that the woman did indeed fall off a cliff and sustain non-life threatening injuries.
However police no longer count the three women reportedly drinking nearby as suspects in this incident.
