Four Canadian cadets die after car crashes into water at military college | Canada

Four Canadian army cadets have died after their car fell into water on their campus in Ontario.

The incident happened early Friday on the campus of the Royal Military College in Kingston, Canada’s Department of National Defense said.

The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service is investigating the incident.

College Commodore Josée Kurtz identified the cadets as Jack Hogarth, Andrei Honciu, Broden Murphy and Andrés Salek.

“Four fourth-year Royal Military College of Canada cadets traveling in a single vehicle lost their lives when their car entered the waters at Point Frederick campus on Friday,” Kurtz said Friday evening. Additional details were not available.

She said all four students were completing their Bachelor of Arts. Hogarth and Salek were studying military and strategic studies and would go on to become armored officers in the army.

On Friday, investigators were examining the road and shore in boats and on foot. Late Friday afternoon, the vehicle carrying the cadets was pulled from the water by authorities, CBC News reported.

“My heart breaks for the families and friends of the four cadets who lost their lives early this morning in Kingston,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted. “The tragic passing of these young Canadians is a devastating loss. To all those who knew them: we are here for you.
