One person has died and another remains in hospital following an incident on Guelph Lake Wednesday afternoon.
Wellington County OPP and Guelph Fire and Paramedics rushed to the lake around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday after two people fell through the ice and into the water.
Provincial Police say the couple were ice boating at the time of the incident when their vessel broke through the ice about 200-feet away from the shore, resulting in the pair falling and becoming trapped in the frigid waters.
First responders rescued the couple from the waters and rushed them to hospital where 62-year old Margaret “Molly” Kurvink was later pronounced dead.
Kurvink’s husband who attempted to save her from the waters remains in hospital in stable condition.
