MAPLE RIDGE, B.C. - The body of a second young man who drowned at a park in Maple Ridge, B.C., has been recovered.

The 22-year-old and a friend were at a popular swimming hole at Golden Ears Provincial Park when they were swept away by the fast-moving waters on Friday.

Search and Rescue officials recovered the body of an 18-year-old male, but the older one remained missing until Wednesday.

RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop says the loss of the two young men is tragic and affects many people.

The victims' names have not been released.
