A young person was taken to the Hospital for Sick Children with minor injuries, while an adult male was treated and released at the scene after emergency personnel were called to the Toronto Beach area Sunday evening for reports of a person in the water.

Toronto Fire Service told CP24 that they were called to the Ashbridges Bay Park area for reports of a “person in distress" around 6 p.m.

Several fire rescue boats were subsequently deployed to Lake Ontario near Northern Dancer Boulevard and Lake Shore Boulevard East. Crews also searched in the water.
