NB Woman Dead After Water Mishap In Marshville

A 66 year-old New Brunswick woman is dead after an incident on the water last night.

The woman was using an inflatable dingy in Marshville, Nova Scotia. Police say she got caught in the current and changing tides which began carrying her out into the Northumberland Strait.

Fire crews, paramedics and the Canadian Coast Guard were each called in to help but by the time they located the woman she was unconscious. The woman, believed to be from Moncton, was later pronounced dead at a hospital in New Glasgow.

Police are not releasing her name or any other details. They are trying to make sure the family has been notified.
