Coroner looking into Sudbury diver's death
In a release, Greater Sudbury Police said Scott Champagne, 41, was on a recreational dive when he died suddenly.
Champagne was a special constable who worked at the courthouse in Sudbury.
Police said Emergency Services were called to an area near Moose Mountain, north of Capreol, around 11 a.m.
“Recreational divers were diving in the quarry when one of the divers surfaced and appeared to be in distress,” police said. “Divers immediately swam to the man’s aid and pulled him to shore. The divers on scene began life-saving measures and continued to do so until Greater Sudbury paramedics arrived and took over.”
Champagne, however, was pronounced deceased on scene.
“Scott was a proud and beloved member of the Greater Sudbury Police Service, working as a special constable at the courthouse since 2001,” police said. “He was also a dedicated member of our auxiliary unit. Scott is survived by his loving wife and two children.”
Greater Sudbury Police Service Criminal Investigations Division detectives are working in collaboration with
the Coroner’s Office. The incident is being treated as a sudden death and is a part of a coroner’s investigation.
