Jonathan Stein-Palmiere

Jonathan Stein-Palmiere, a 20-year-old apprentice carpenter of Calgary, Alberta, died May 31, 2019, after entering Lake Windermere near Windermere, British Columbia, to rescue a 10-year-old girl struggling in the water. After the girl lost hold of an inflatable float, she struggled to return to the beach. Despite being a poor swimmer, Stein-Palmiere, who was in the family’s party at the beach, responded. He swam to the girl, grasped her, and pushed her closer to the beach. She was able to return to shore, but Stein-Palmiere submerged and failed to resurface. Others recovered Stein-Palmiere and attempted to revive him, but he had drowned.
