The man was brought a shore in Summerland

UPDATE: 12:12 p.m.

A private boat on Okanagan Lake managed to rescue the unconscious man on a Sea-Doo about 11:35 a.m.

It appears the man was actually closer to Summerland than Peachland.

The boat took the man to a private dock on Dent Street.

West Kelowna and Peachland marine rescue crews were told to stand down, as Summerland RCMP and BC Ambulance attended the scene.

The man was conscious once he reached shore and was placed on a stretcher and taken to a waiting ambulance.
