A man in his 20s has died after being pulled from Lake Ontario Sunday morning.

Paramedics say a group of friends were walking along Queens Quay at Yonge near the ferry terminal around 5 a.m. when one of them fell into the water.

The victim was underwater for several minutes before emergency personnel were able to pull him out of the water without any vital signs. He was taken to a trauma centre in critical condition where he was eventually pronounced dead several hours later.

Police are treating this as an accidental death.
