N.B. RCMP recover body in submerged vehicle driven off ferry

New Brunswick RCMP are searching the water after a vehicle drove off the Gondola Point Ferry Saturday night. Submitted

New Brunswick RCMP’s underwater recovery team recovered a body Sunday afternoon in a submerged vehicle, after searching for a car that went off the Gondola Point Ferry ramp the night before.

RCMP have since identified the person as a 40-year-old man from Nauwigewauk, N.B.

The vehicle was spotted driving through a barricade at the terminal, off the ferry ramp and into the water at around 9 p.m. on Saturday.

Staff Sgt. Jeff Johnston said the fire department responded and put a boat onto the water immediately. He said the underwater recovery team joined the search later Sunday morning.

The ferry, which links Quispamsis, N.B. with Kingston Peninsula was not operational at the time of the incident.
