OPP say another case drowning has claimed lives this weekend. Two men in their twenties went missing Saturday at Wasaga beach. They were last reported being seen at the mouth of the Nottawasaga River when police received the emergency call. Officials searched the water for about an hour and found bother men unresponsive. Despite life saving efforts, both were pronounced dead. Investigators say alcohol is not a factor in these drownings. They also confirm one man is from Collingwood and the other is from Caledon, and that neither were wearing life jackets.
