A 36-year-old man is dead following an all-terrain vehicle accident in Pointe-Sapin, near Kouchibouguac, on Friday.

RCMP say the man's ATV flipped while travelling on l'Abbature beach and he died at the scene as a result of his injuries.

His body was found in the water, police said.

The man's identity has not been released, but he is from Pointe-Sapin, a small northern community of about 350 people.

The investigation continues.
