Midland | by Mariane McLeod  

OPP warn snowmobilers thawing ice means trouble on Georgian Bay.

As expected the cause of death of a snowmobiler found in the waters of Georgian Bay early Saturday morning is drowning.

An autopsy revealed the cause of death yesterday of 40 year old Robert Quesnelle.

Police say the ice on Georgian Bay is breaking up fast as the weather warms up.

Over the weekend, three other snowmobilers went into the water in the same area.

Three people from Penetanguishene are being recommended for citations for their help in the rescues.
