A lifeless body could be that of the last sledders French sought since it was sunk in company of eight other people last January, in the lac Saint-Jean, was reportedly found on Wednesday in the late morning.
The body was found by a citizen around 11: 30 a.m. in the area of the path of the Peninsula, at Alma. The body of the man was on the shore of the Grand river Discharge.
“According to initial information, it could be one of the snowmobilers who sank at the mouth of Lac St-Jean in the month of January last,” it said in a news release, the sergeant Hugues Beaulieu, spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec.
In all likelihood, all of the bodies of the victims of this tragedy have now been found.
In total, nine people – eight French tourists and their guide in quebec – had sunk in the icy waters of lake Saint-Jean. The number three had managed to regain the land.
Unfortunately, the guide Benoit Lespérance, a native of Montreal, had lost their lives, as five French tourists.
All the bodies had been recovered since this time, except one, who finally have been found on Wednesday morning.
All of the snowmobiles involved in the drama were also recovered.
