Three people had to be rescued as their boar sank on Lake Erie.

Essex County Ontario Provincial Police say they received a report of a vessel in distress off Kingsville on Lake Erie on Friday June 18th, 2021 around 12:45 pm.

The operator of the 29 foot vessel was fighting strong winds and waves and noticed that it was taking on water. The three adult occupants onboard soon realized the boat was beginning to sink, they all had their lifejackets on and ended up in the water.

A call was placed to 911 from witnesses on shore, and the OPP marine unit and the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre were engaged. Prior to the OPP marine unit or JRCC Trenton deployed units arriving on scene a civilian vessel made its way out to the three parties and assisted with their rescue.

All parties were accounted for and no injuries were sustained in the incident.
