Kayaker rescued after going missing in the water on Cassels Street

Ottawa Fire Services says a kayaker has been rescued after going missing in the water on Cassels Street.

Crews say they received a call Saturday just before 5 p.m. saying two kayakers were seen entering the rapids, noting that only one was seen after.

Water Rescue teams from Ottawa and Gatineau immediately started looking for the kayaker.

The kayaker was found shortly after crews launched their boats and started using binoculars to locate them.

Ottawa Fire Services adds three boaters were also rescued from the water after their boat flipped over on Sunday on the Ottawa River — Deschenes Rapids.

While one of them “was found, by Gatineau Fire Water Rescue team, hanging onto a paddle board by the rapids,” the other two were found, by Ottawa Fire Water Rescue teams, holding onto a rock.

All three boaters were safely brought to shore, crews say.
