Based on reports, the man went for a dip in the water off his boat at around 5 PM but with the currents, was unable to get back to his ladder. His son jumped in the water to try to help him out but could not.
The Canadian Coast Guard and paramedics called to the site just off Dorval found the man and performed CPR but were not successful. Sadly, he was pronounced dead in a healthcare facility.
