Two drowned at North Beach Sunday

Two men have drowned at North Beach Provincial Park, Sunday.

Prince Edward County OPP responded with Fire and Rescue and Hastings Quinte EMS to North Beach Provincial Park on County Road 27 for two incidents on Sunday July 26.

Const. Aaron Miller a family had been swimming and one member failed to surface at approximately 1 p.m.

“An individual was pulled from the water and CPR was started by first responders on scene, before being taken to a local hospital. Alex Aloysius, 64, of Oshawa, was pronounced deceased.”

Just before 6 p.m. officers responded again with Prince Edward County Fire and Rescue and Hastings Quinte EMS to North Beach Provincial Park.

“A group of friends had been swimming and one party failed to surface. An individual was pulled from the water and CPR was started by bystanders before being transported to a local hospital,” stated Miller.

Muhammad Azmat, 25, of Mississauga was pronounced deceased.

The Office for the Chief Coroner of Ontario is leading both investigations, with assistance from the Prince Edward OPP. Post mortem examinations have been scheduled for both persons. Foul play is not suspected.

The OPP would like to remind everyone to be aware of current conditions before entering any body of water especially being aware of their location and any hazards present.

“Eastern Ontario has seen a tragic number of drowning incidents in 2020. In many cases, proper use of a life jacket would have almost certainly resulted in a different outcome. If you are heading out on the water, wear your personal floatation device (PFD) or life jacket. It cannot save you if you don’t wear it.”
