Default Lake Simcoe accident

Copied this from another site. Did anyone else hear about this? It was posted on Aug 2, 2010


Accident on Lake Simcoe
Beyond The Barrier Nor-Tech blew over while making a run down Cooks Bay on Lake Simcoe just north of Toronto about 3 hours ago. By the time I got there 2 occupants where pulled out of the wreckage by a few brave people that dove under to free them. Both occupants looked to be in serious condition as they were brought to shore where an ambulance was standing by.
Lets hope for the well being of all the occupants.

Happened Sunday evening. The two occupants are fine, thank goodness. They are neighbors to a very dear friend of mine.

Not a blow over according to other site. Hit a cruiser wake @119 and landed wrong.

Correct, Sea-Dated.

The other neighbor, who is a doctor, rushed over in their own boat and saved them. Luckily, it happened in plain sight of and close enough to shore that they could make it over rather quickly.
