On May 11, 2018, the Ontario Provincial Police and Rideau Lakes Fire Fighters responded to a submerged vehicle at a boat launch in North Crosby Township. The driver was trapped in the vehicle approximately 50 metres from shore.
The police officer and fire fighter Matthew Younge worked together and entered the water and were able to retrieve the female and bring her to shore.
Matthew was recently awarded the Ontario Award for Bravery at the OPP Honours and Awards ceremony held in Kingston. We are proud of you, Matthew!
