A London man’s body has been found more than two weeks after he fell off a cruise boat in Lake Ontario.

The body of Keith White, 34, was found in the Humber Bay area at approximately 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

White was on an evening lake cruise with a group of friends on Saturday, June 13, when he fell from the boat into the water.

His girlfriend told CTV Toronto that the experienced lifeguard was "goofing around" when he toppled over the boat’s railing.

White fell off the Northern Spirit I cruise boat at approximately 7:40 p.m., as the boat passed through the Humber Bay area. Witnesses saw him in the water, waving his hands and asking for help, but White’s girlfriend said she lost sight of him after 10 minutes.

By the time the boat turned around he had disappeared.

Police, who have been searching the area since the incident, estimated that the water was 9 C at the time. A person exposed to water at that temperature can experience hypothermia within 10 minutes.

In a statement sent to CTV Toronto by White’s sister Tiffany, the family said he "embraced living life to the fullest."

Family members said they were confused about the incident, and wrote that they didn’t understand why it took so long for help to arrive.

"We look forward to the investigation determining how his location in the water was lost so quickly in calm water in daylight," the family wrote.
