Back Bay Man Drowns In Weekend Accident

RCMP tell CHSJ News the man who drowned in the Bay of Fundy on Saturday is 45-year-old Norman Nathan Parker of Back Bay.

It's believed the man and his 10-year-old son were forced to abandon their boat after suffering engine problems.

The St. George Fire chief says the boy swam about 100 metres in the Bay of Fundy and walked at least three kilometres to try and find help.
Sean Morton says the man was not wearing a lifejacket at the time but, they do not know if the boy was wearing one.
