Montrealers trying to stay cool advised not to swim at beaches that aren't yet open


It's been another very hot day and people are looking for ways to keep cool.

Some have been going to Verdun Beach but it's not open to the public yet and there are no lifeguards on duty there.

The beach's website says: "When there is no lifeguard in the swimming area, swimming is not recommended and is at your own risk due to high water levels and heavy currents."

It's a message that's echoed by the executive director of the Quebec branch of the Lifesaving Society.
