Two people are dead including a 13-year-old girl from Toronto, and four others are injured after two boats carrying a total of six people collided on Lake Rosseau near Muskoka’s Windermere Marina.

Bracebridge Ontario Provincial Police received multiple 911 calls around 7:40 p.m. on Wednesday, with witnesses describing seeing several people in the water.

Muskoka EMS, Muskoka Lakes Fire Department, the OPP Marine Unit, the OPP Underwater Search and Recovery Unit and the OPP Aviation Unit also responded.

Four people were pulled from the water and rushed to hospital. A woman, who police said is from the Toronto area, was later airlifted to a hospital in that region with life-threatening injuries. The other three people have since been released from hospital.

The OPP said the 13-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Provincial police said the body of a 51-year-old woman from Oakville was recovered around 4 p.m. Thursday. She has been identified as Donna Wiley.

Police said three people were on each of the two motorized boats.
