"Friend became concerned when the flotation device was observed without the male on it. Friends of the male called 911 and a collaborative search and rescue operation ensued. The search lasted approx 2 hours," an excerpt from the police report reads.
Police revealed that the man's body was later discovered a short distance from where he was last seen by an OPP helicopter. He was immediately transferred to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The investigation is still ongoing, but police believe the man was a weak swimmer.
This was one of two deaths that were reported at the beach over the weekend. On Sunday, police say they located a man who was suffering life-threatening injuries. The man died at the scene and police are treating the incident as suspicious.
