Man vital signs absent pulled from lakefront ship channel

A man apparently engaged in some form of swimming challenge has been pulled from the bay without vital signs. A drama unfolded Monday morning when a woman, who was with the man, jumped into to water to help him when he started to struggle. Employees from Redpath Sugar, which is located on an inlet near Dockside Drive and Martin Goodman Trail, were able to pull the man out. The perils of swimming in Toronto Bay, particularly in deep shipping channels, dirty water and all, seem fairly obvious.
