The RCMP say a 28-year-old Kelowna man, a 28-year-old Kelowna woman and a 24-year-old woman from Grand Forks jumped off the Osoyoos Bridge just before 2 a.m. on Sunday and were swept out into the lake.
Sgt. Kevin Schur says the three drunk swimmers were swept far from shore and could be heard screaming for help in the dark.
Four tourists heard the screams and used a private boat and a dingy to reach the trio and keep them afloat until an RCMP rescue boat arrived.
