Young cousins killed as snowmobiles fall through ice on Ontario lake - CTV NewsWednesday, March 27, 2019
Police are investigating the deaths. People familiar with the area say snowmobilers generally stay away from the ice-covered Lake Muskoka, due to its notoriously poor ice conditions and a lakeshore trail.
"The ice has been horrible this year," Nicole Martin said.
"People should be paying attention to their surroundings, knowing what's going on, knowing what the trail's for."
A joint funeral for the two boys is expected to take place Saturday in Bracebridge.

Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
