The body of a Calgary man has been recovered from the Peace River in northeast British Columbia, nearly one month after he was swept away while fishing.
In a social media post, the family of Aaron Kingma says his body was spotted Tuesday by a family living along the Peace River near Hudson’s Hope, west of Fort St. John.
The 39-year-old was fishing in that area on May 29 when he was pulled under by a strong current.
The post says RCMP have positively identified the body.
The family is now making arrangements to return Kingma’s body to Calgary.
He is survived by a wife and two daughters, aged nine and one.
