Body pulled from Lake Ontario in east Toronto, days after two others found


TORONTO — A body has been pulled from Lake Ontario in the Toronto’s east end, the third in as many days.

Toronto police say the body was recovered at Bluffer’s Park but has not yet been identified.

Emergency crews have been searching for a man who was struggling to stay above water at Bluffer’s Park on Saturday.

The missing man was in the lake with his brother, who died in hospital overnight after suffering serious injuries.

Two other incidents took place at the same waterfront area on Saturday.

A man’s body was discovered in the water around 5:20 p.m., and police are treating that case as suspicious.

Roughly two hours later, two bystanders were injured rescuing a child from the rough water.
