The Heli-Transport Services McDonnell Douglas 369E was transporting two line cutters from base camp to a position a few miles west of Davy Lake, SK. About 4 miles west the pilot executed a descending 180 degree turn over a small lake. During the turn, a high rate of descent developed, and the helicopter struck the water, overturned and submerged about 100 feet from the shore. All occupants were able to evacuate. One passenger was unable to reach shore and is missing.
