INGONISH — RCMP located the body of Gregory Hibbs in Ingonish harbour and brought him to shore late this morning.
“Family was notified immediately. The father identified the body,” said RCMP Const. Brad Anderson, adding the medical examiner’s office has been notified and there will be an autopsy tomorrow.
RCMP received a call of an overturned boat at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Five people ages 14-18 were in a small rowboat when it took on water and overturned about a kilometre from shore. Four of the teens made it to shore. The fifth youth — identified as Gregory Hibbs of Glace Bay — was last seen by his friends in the water.
More to come.
