Body found in water near Petrie Island

Last Updated May 6, 2016 at 4:56 pm EDT

OTTAWA – Crews were called around 12:30 Friday afternoon after a person in a kayak spotted a body floating off shore near Petrie Island.

    The location was inaccessible by foot or car so rescue crews were forced to head to the location by boat. Crews confirmed the body is a male, but because of how decomposed it is they are unable to determine an age.

He was also wearing a winter jacket which confirms the body had been in the water for a long time.

The cause of death is not known at this time and is being investigated.
