A swimmer in distress has disappeared in the Jacques-Cartier river, fifty miles north of the city of Québec on Friday.
To 18 h, the police officers of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) have been called upon to make on the way to the Parc-National Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury in respect of a person in distress in the Jacques-Cartier river.
According to initial information collected by the SQ, two swimmers were in the river, without floatation jacket.
