OPP Dog Lake Rescue

Both Wearing Life Jackets

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~  June 5, 2020  (LSN)  On the 5th of June 2020 at around 3pm police received an emergency call from a person stating that he and his friend flipped their canoe and were floating in Dog Lake. Officers from the Thunder Bay OPP responded with a marine unit. 

The OPP communications center was able to ping the caller's phone and provide a GPS location to the responding officers. Police located the males in very rough water conditions. Both men had been in the water for over an hour and were experiencing hypothermia. They were brought to paramedics at the landing and transported to the Thunder Bay Regional hospital. Four other canoeists in the group and their canoes were removed from shores of the lake and brought to paramedics with the assistance of MNR Conservations officers.

Police credit the use of lifejackets with being responsible for saving these two men's lives.
