A twelve-year-old boy was injured after being hit in the head by a seaplane while kayaking on a lake in Grand-Remous, north of Maniwaki in the Outaouais. The accident happened around 4 p.m. Saturday at the Baskatong Reservoir. “The pilot of the seaplane that landed on the lake did not see the kayak,” said a spokesperson for the Sureté du Québec, Jean-Raphaël Drolet, who said added it was “too early to comment on the severity of the boy’s injuries.” He was transported hospital. Another person was in the kayak, but was not injured, according to the SQ.
