On June 17, 2018, at around 5:30 pm Huntsville Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) along with Muskoka EMS and Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Rescue were advised that a female had gone down Stubbs Falls and was caught in the rocks. Stubbs Falls is a popular area for hikers and is located in Arrowhead Provincial Park, in Huntsville, On.
When the emergency services arrived, they found that the female was completely submerged under the water and she was caught under a larger rock. It was learned that she was up further in the falls and had slipped and gone down with the fast running water.
The crew was able to pull the female out and was transported to a local area hospital. The 26-year-old female from St Catherines, ON was then transported to the Orillia Hospital where she remains in critical condition.
Huntsville OPP would like to thank all the campers and park staff with their assistance in this tragic incident.
