VICTORIA -- The coroner is investigating a death late Monday night at a marina in North Saanich.
Mounties were called to the Canoe Cove Marina just after 10:30 p.m. for a man who fell into the water and was unable to pull himself out.
Police conducted a search of the area and located the man in approximately four and a half metres of water.
Mounties used some nearby equipment to pull the man from the water and onto a dock where first aid was administered.
Paramedics attempted to revive the man but were unsuccessful. The 64-year-old man was pronouned dead at the scene.
The coroner remained at the scene Tuesday to determine the cause and circumstances of the death.
