The research has been re-launched, very early Saturday morning, to find a man in the twenties that would have sunk in the waters of the Jacques-Cartier river, near the Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury.

The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) has been alerted to 18h, Friday, for a swimmer in distress in the Jacques-Cartier river, in the area of national park of the same name.

Two people were coming down with the current without a boat or floatation jacket. One of them would have disappeared into the water, while the other would have managed to get out for help.

Firefighters have spent the evening trying to find the young man, with a helicopter of the SQ in the assistance.

After having been interrupted for the night, searches were restarted at 6 o’clock Saturday. A team of water rescue leads, in particular the operation.
