A 73-year-old Winnipeg man was found in the water and pronounced deceased on shore. A 42-year-old Winnipeg man is still missing.

RCMP, along with STARS air ambulance, Victoria Beach Fire and Rescue, East Beaches Fire Department, the Canadian Coast Guard and CFB Trenton/17 Wing also responded to the scene.
