Fall in the North River: Search continues on Saturday

UPDATE DAY

The search continues on Saturday to find the teenager who accidentally fell Thursday noon in the Rivière du Nord near Sainte-Adèle in the Laurentians.

For 48 hours, the police and firefighters have been at work trying to find the young girl.

Divers from the Sûreté du Québec were also back on Saturday to take part in the searches.

During the night from Friday to Saturday, patrollers also raked the banks, on foot, to try to find the young girl.

The edge of the river , where the tragedy occurred, has also become a place of contemplation for the people of the region. Flowers and letters in honor of the young girl were left.

Michèle Lalonde, mayoress of Sainte-Adèle, admitted to being on the alert since Thursday.

“Every time I receive a text message, my heart skips a beat, I wonder what news I will be told,” she said.

She said she was moved by the generosity of citizens who offer to come and volunteer in the hope of finding the young girl. Unfortunately, given the high level of the river, it can be dangerous for inexperienced people to venture too close.
