Police Say Woman's Story Of Getting Pushed Off 40-Foot Cliff In Canada Didn't Actually Happen As She Reported

About three weeks ago, a woman claimed she was pushed off a cliff in Canada. Now, RCMP are sharing some findings of their investigation with the public. The RCMP say a woman didn't get pushed off 40-foot Thetis Lake cliff as she had previously reported. According to them, it did not actually happen like she claimed. 

According to West Shore RCMP, a 29-year-old woman reported that she was pushed off 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 BC. 

A public police report stated that the female victim was hiking near the first beach cliff face when she met a group of three females who were not previously known to her, who were said to be 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. 

Fortunately, the victim was able to swim and brought herself to shore. She later was given medical attention for her injuries. 

While this is what initially was reported by the 29-year-old woman, police now have reason to believe it is not exactly true. According to a statement issued today on June 12, 2019 by RCMP, the investigation has concluded and they are no longer looking for suspects. 

Investigators have determined the incident did not occur as was originally reported and suspects are no longer being sought in relation to this matter, said Cst. Nancy SAGGAR, Media Relations Officer, West Shore RCMP, in the release. 

At this time, no further information can be provided by the police. 

It was originally reported that three Caucasian females between 20 and 30-years-old were the suspects. Two had brown hair and one had blonde hair. They were all said to be wearing bathing suits and sunglasses at the time of the incident.
