Missing Toronto canoeist found dead in Georgian Bay, police say
Man identified as 29-year-old Mateusz Janus
Ontario Provincial Police say the body of a 29-year-old canoeist has been found in the waters of Georgian Bay.
Police say divers from the OPP underwater search and rescue unit located and removed the body at around 8 p.m. on Monday.
The man has been identified as Toronto resident Mateusz Janus.
The OPP say Janus and a 36-year-old Toronto man were not carrying any safety equipment when they capsized early Monday while paddling on Georgian Bay in a small canoe.
A nearby kayaker was able to rescue the 36-year-old, who was treated in hospital for hypothermia caused by the cold water.
Police say an autopsy will be conducted in Toronto to determine how Janus died.
