Police searching for man who fell off boat into St. Lawrence River
Search to resume Sunday morning
Police, firefighters and members of the Canadian Armed Forces are searching for a man who fell off a boat into the St. Lawrence River off Montreal's South Shore Sunday afternoon.
Around 3:30 p.m., the man fell off a small boat with three others on board.
Quebec provincial police believe the man could have been ejected from the boat as it was making a turn near La Prairie. They say he was not wearing a life jacket.
Firefighters fished out a body around 5 p.m., but it was not the man they were searching for. Police say the body had been underwater for a long time.
A Canadian Armed Forces helicopter assisted in the search.
The search will resume Monday morning.
