Lake Simcoe: do not kitesurf or windsurf with icy conditions

The Canadian police rescued four Toronto kitesurfers from the Lake Simcoe.

Despite warnings from various people, the intrepid sailors tried their luck in the icy surface conditions of Simcoe.

But the weather and riding conditions were not on their side and fire fighters were joined by an airboat to rescue the kitesurfers already suffering severe hypothermia.

It was difficult to reach the athletes and policemen had to cross the icy surface to reach them. One of the kitesurfers had almost drowned and was reanimated by paramedics.

In the end, everyone was ok but the authorities have underlined a serious message - the Lake Simcoe season is over.
