Ontario Provincial Police say a 22-year-old Brampton man drowned at Wasaga Beach on Saturday.

Emergency crews responded to reports of a possible drowning at 5:30 p.m. in front of Beach Area 2.

Police said initial reports indicated that a man was last seen on a flotation toy a few hundred metres out in the water and friends of his became concerned when they saw the toy without the man on it.
