Provincial police are investigating two apparent drowning deaths and the near-drowning of a child over the long holiday weekend.
Yesterday afternoon, a man was found unresponsive in the water at a campground in the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock north of Woodstock, Ont.
The unidentified man was without vital signs by the time emergency responders arrived, and he was pronounced dead in a local hospital.
The body of a second man believed to have drowned was recovered yesterday from the Sturgeon River in the Municipality of West Nipissing.
Provincial police say the unidentified 57-year-old man was sitting on a chair on a wooden raft on Sunday when it broke and he fell into the river.
Also yesterday, a 13-year-old girl was found unconscious in a small lake at a campground in the Municipality of West Perth northwest of Stratford.
Emergency responders were able to resuscitate her before she was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition.
