ORILLIA, Ontario - Recovery divers Sunday pulled the body of a third missing Canadian snowmobiler from an Ontario lake.
The bodies of the two other Huntsville snowmobilers were recovered from Lake of Bays Saturday, Canwest News Service reported. The three victims had been missing since Friday night and authorities began searching the lake after discovering some clothing floating there.
In a separate accident, authorities were looking for an 80-year-old man who failed to return from an ice-fishing expedition Friday on Lake Nipissing in northeastern Ontario. Police had found a snowmobile helmet they believed belonged to him floating in the water, Canwest reported.
In a third incident, four people were injured -- two seriously -- when the medical helicopter they were in crashed Saturday while responding to a snowmobile accident near Snake Lake, police said.
