On September 22, 2016 at 10:33 a.m., the Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a report of a diver in distress in Little Cove of Georgian Bay, Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula.  Officers responded with members of the Canadian Coast Guard, and Bruce County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) paramedics.

A group of divers were exploring the Niagara II Shipwreck site when a 45-year-old female diver began experiencing medical distress. The other divers assisted her by performing CPR. 

The Canadian Coast Guard took her to Little Tub Harbour where the paramedics took over and transferred her to the Tobermory Hyperbaric Chamber for treatment. Once treatment was completed she was air lifted to a Toronto hospital for further medical care.

The female is listed in stable condition.


The South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is sending another warning about fraud following a report that the computer repair scam got $300, in US dollars, from a resident in the Municipality of Kincardine. 

The computer repair scam is typically a phone call to let you know there’s a problem with your computer.  The caller will use a company name like “Microsoft” to gain your trust and then charges you a fee for the “repair”.  If you feel that there’s something wrong with your computer, seek out a reputable computer repair service, don’t trust the stranger on the phone.

To help stop fraud, always verify unsolicited contacts before you decide to share personal information or send money.  Unsolicited means that you didn’t ask for it.

Anyone interested in more information on fraud can contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1 888 495 8501 or check online athttp://www.antifraudcentre.ca.
