4 Boaters Saved After Their Vessel Capsized
On September 1, 2019, at approximately 8:30 p.m., the North Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Anishinabek Police Service (APS) responded to a report of people yelling for help on Lake Nipissing near Nova Beaucage Road in Nipissing First Nation.
Officers found that a vessel with four occupants had overturned and they were unable to swim to shore.
Marine officers from the North Bay OPP located the vessel and rescued the occupants who suffered minor injuries. None of the occupants were wearing life jackets.
The North Bay OPP would like to remind boaters to wear their lifejackets while out on the water!
