Snowmobile accident in Quebec: the last of the four French corps identified


Eight French snowmobilers fell in the icy waters of a Quebec lake last January. Only three of them had survived

He was identified more than four months after his disappearance. The body of the last member of a group of French snowmobilers, who fell in January to the icy waters of a lake in Quebec, has been identified, police said on Saturday.

It is Jean-René Dumoulin, 24, from eastern France like the other members of the group, said Sergeant Béatrice Dorsainville of the Sûreté du Québec.

The body of the snowmobiler was found in late May, a few days after that of Arnaud Antoine, 25, more than 12 km from the scene of the tragedy.

Bodies discovered by walkers

The two young men were the last members of the group whose bodies could not be found during the intensive search which followed the accident and had to be interrupted due to difficult winter conditions. The bodies were discovered by walkers on the banks or in the waters of the Grande Décharge river.

On January 21, several members of a group of eight French snowmobilers fell into the icy waters of Lac Saint-Jean at the mouth of the Grande Décharge River, in an area where the currents weaken the ice that had given way under the weight of their gear.

Three of the snowmobilers had survived minor injuries and a nervous shock, but the other five died as did their guide, a 42-year-old Montrealer.
