Police officials are currently investigating a scary incident after a woman was pushed off a cliff in BC by three complete strangers. The incident took place during this past Victoria Day long weekend at a popular lake in British Columbia. No one has been charged with the incident and police are continuing to search for the people responsible.
According to West Shore RCMP, a 29-year-old woman was pushed over a 40-foot cliff while hiking, causing her to fall into the water below. The incident took place at Thetis Lake, which is located just outside of Victoria on Vancouver Island.
In a public police report, RCMP stated that the incident took place at around 3:30 PM on May 19, 2019. In the report, it states that the female victim was hiking near the first beach cliff face when she met up with a group of three unknown females. According to police, the females were drinking alcohol at the time of the incident.
The victim was allegedly looking over the cliff when someone pushed her from behind. This caused the woman to fall off the cliff and into the water 40 feet below.
Thankfully, the victim was able to swim and brought herself to shore.
At this time, the police do not know who the three female suspects are, although they have been given a description. According to them, the three females are Caucasian and between 20 and 30-years-old. Two had brown hair and one had blonde hair. They were all wearing bathing suits and sunglasses at the time of the incident.
Police believe that there may have been witnesses in the area including a male who offered to help the victim after the incident. After the victim brought herself to shore and police were called, medical attention was received for her injuries.
