“A doctor and a nurse who were on another boat near the accident came to assist the victim while waiting for the emergency services,” said Alain Lessard, spokesperson for the Longueuil agglomeration fire department ( SIAL).

When firefighters arrived, the woman was taken to shore, where paramedics picked her up.

Having suffered serious injuries, she was transported to a hospital. We would not fear for his life, however, said Mr. Lessard.

In addition to SIAL and the paramedics, the coast guard and the Longueuil agglomeration police department took part in the intervention.
