MOON RIVER, Ont. — Police divers have pulled a male body from the swirling waterfall in Ontario’s Muskoka cottage region where three cliff-jumpers went missing Sunday.
Divers are still searching for two more swimmers who are presumed drowned.
A provincial police helicopter carrying a team of eight police divers touched down on the south bank of the Moon Falls just before 9 a.m.
The first body, clad in black shorts, was dragged onto the rocks about 15 minutes later.
Seven people believed to be in their 20s got into the water Sunday but only four came out.
The swimmers entered the lower portion of the waterfalls where the water moved faster than normal and was half a metre higher than usual due to recent heavy rainfall.
