UPDATE: Body of 27-year-old man pulled from water near Rawdon

Dorwin Falls

A rescue team has recovered the body of a 27-year-old man who went missing after jumping into the water near the Dorwin Falls near Rawdon on Sunday evening.

It seems the man jumped into the water at around 6:00 Sunday evening to assist a woman who was carried away by the current.

She was later found with only minor injuries. The man was swept away and was lost.

Darkness forced crews to call the search off Sunday night. It resumed Monday morning, and ended at around noon.

Two years ago, a newlywed, Maria Pantazopoulos, was swept away by heavy currents at the same site while posing for wedding photos.

Meanwhile, police near St. Timothee are looking for another swimmer, a 21-year-old man, who was swept away by a heavy current Sunday afternoon near the doors of a Hydro-Quebec dam.
