MUSKOKA, Ont. — An Oakville woman is missing in a boating collision in Muskoka that killed a 13-year-old from Toronto and also injured several people, one of them critically.

OPP say one person, a 51-year-old woman from Oakville, Ont., is still missing following the Wednesday night crash on Lake Rosseau, and search efforts have resumed.

They say a total of six people were aboard the two boats that collided on the lake near Muskoka’s Windermere Marina on Wednesday.

Bracebridge Ontario Provincial Police say they received multiple 911 calls around 7:40 p.m., with witnesses describing seeing several people in the water.

Four people were pulled from the water and rushed to hospital with serious injuries, including one who was later airlifted to a Toronto area hospital.

That person is being treated for life-threatening injuries. Police say the other three have since been released.
