Fatal boating incident in southwest N.S. leaves two men dead: RCMP

RCMP

Nova Scotia RCMP say two men are dead after a boating incident in the Sissiboo Grand Lake area.

The Mounties say they were called to an overturned aluminum boat on Second Lake just before 7 p.m. on Friday.

They say three men were fishing when their boat flipped over and threw them into the water while they were trying to fix some motor issues.

RCMP and search and rescue teams arrived to the remote area after one of the men swam to shore and called to report the incident.

Officers say rescuers located the men from Digby County, aged 56 and 49, in the water a few hours later and pronounced them both dead at the scene.

Police say the investigation is continuing but criminal activity is not suspected.
