Provincial police say a 46-year-old Mississauga man has died in a possible drowning at a campground south of Guelph.

Officers were called to the Emerald Lake Campground in Puslinch, Ont., late Saturday afternoon.

OPP say it was reported that a man was swimming and went under the water, but failed to resurface.

They say a 46-year-old was taken to hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

Police say alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the man’s death.
