Police have released the name of a man who died on Sunday after the canoe he was in capsized in a provincial park in central Ontario.
OPP said the body of 40-year-old Arpad Deak of Hungary was found at about 6 p.m. on Monday.
According to police, Deak, another man and a 10-year-old boy were in a canoe that tipped over at Recollet Falls in French River Provincial Park.
Police say the men were trying to negotiate fast-moving water when the canoe went over, throwing all three occupants into the river.
One of the men and the boy — both of whom were wearing life-jackets — were pulled from the water by other people in the area.
Police say Deak was not wearing a life-jacket.
His body was found by divers in 5.4 meters of water, 75 meters west of the falls.
