Two lives lost in the river….

On April 21, 2007, Roxanne LaLonde she saw her friend, Kellie Galipeau, standing in the middle of the road near Andrewsville Bridge, on the Rideau River, waving her arms and screaming as her 15-year-old son, Grant, was swept through the frigid waters of the Rideau River.

LaLonde, an off-duty naval Master Seaman, gave her live attempting to save Grant, who also drowned.

For months afterwards, the bridge was adorned with flowers and gifts in memory of the two lives taken that day.
