A man was swept away by the current while swimming with his family Saturday afternoon at Cap-Saint-Jacques, in the west of the island of Montreal.
According to the information of Emergency health, the incident occurred at around 14: 30 in the area of the ecological Farm.
The research conducted by the fire department of the Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal (SIM), with the assistance of officers of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), continued into the early evening.
“Urgences-santé are on the scene to take care of the family, who is upset,” told the QMI Agency spokesman Jean-François Coornaert.
Note that two young people had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital to treat a nervous shock after having witnessed the scene. We do not know if they are the children of the man who would be old at forty years.
