Saskatchewan man saves son, but dies after truck veers off flooded rural road

REGINA - A Saskatchewan man saved his son, but then died after the pickup truck they were in veered off a flooded rural road.

RCMP say the 39-year-old man from the town of Imperial and his 10-year-old son were driving on a rural road last Friday when they came upon a 200-metre section that was underwater.

The water was from a slough near the roadway that had overflowed with recent flooding.

Mounties say the truck veered off the east side of the road and began to sink in deeper water.

They say the driver, who has not been named, ensured that his son got out first and swam to safety.

The driver also got out of the vehicle, but never made it to shore and the RCMP underwater recovery team later found his body.
