"Around 4:30 p.m., emergency services were called to intervene on Lac Saint-Jean" near the Vauvert-sur-le-lac-Saint-Jean tourist complex, said Sûreté du Québec (SQ) spokesperson Nicolas Scholtus.

The body was found by fishermen and retrieved by SQ water patrol officers. The body will be examined by the Laboratoire de sciences judiciaires et de médecine légale in Montreal, said Scholtus.

The SQ has not released the identity of the victim.
