Emergency services are working to recover the body of a swimmer Monday following a Sunday night incident at the quarry on HWY 15, a popular swimming spot for nearby residents.

Kingston Police on scene confirmed the search for one 24-year-old male swimmer reported to have gone below the water and not returned to the surface Sunday evening.

The call came through shortly after 4pm Sunday evening. Other swimmers were asked to leave the property at about 5pm.

One group of five, possibly family members could be seen arriving in tears. They were holding hands and allowed to visit the scene. Other friends and family have been visiting the scene to pay their respects since.

An OPP dive team is expected to begin a search mid-day Monday.
