The body of an 18-year-old Mississauga man was pulled from Muskoka River over the weekend after the swimmer disappeared underneath its waters on Saturday.

According to the OPP, officers responded to reports of someone struggling near the south branch of the river near Golden Beach Road shortly after 7:00 p.m. on Saturday.

The victim never resurfaced and an underwater search and recovery unit was later called in to help locate the body.

"The search was suspended due to visibility and safety concerns and resumed early morning on Sunday, July 4," an excerpt from the police report reads. Just before 9 a.m., the body was recovered.

CTV reported that the tragedy occurred during a family camping trip in Muskoka.
