Constable Carriere of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Dive Team was stationed in Nova Scotia at the time of his death. Constable Carriere drowned while assisting Canadian Customs inspectors during the inspection of ship at Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

He was inspecting the hull of the ship when he disappeared. He reported being low on air and then contact was lost despite a search by the other officers. It appears that having released his weight belt, he had floated up and become jammed under the flat bottom of the hull. His death was due to drowning. His body was recovered the next day, December 1, 1997.

He is survived by his wife and two teenage children.
