Nine people hospitalized after boat crash on Ontario's Lake Scugog: police

CAESAREA, Ont. — Police say nine people, including a six-month-old baby, were hospitalized after two boats crashed north of Oshawa, Ont.

A bystander was able to swim out to save the baby, while the other victims were pulled from the water.

Police say all of the injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

The cause of the accident is being investigated. (CKLY)
