Death by drowning of Fanny Mantha: the pilot of the boat is fined $10,000

< /p>

Fanny Mantha was 30 years old.

Transport Canada has imposed a fine of up to $10,000 for reckless driving on the pilot of a motorboat carrying Fanny Mantha, a 30-year-old woman who died of drowning in the Ottawa River in June 2020.

The department accuses the offender of having used his boat in a reckless manner, without giving it the necessary care and attention or without showing reasonable consideration for a person on board the boat.

The pilot has, however, filed a motion for review with the Transportation Appeal Tribunal of Canada (TATC), the department said in a written message sent to Radio-Canada.

The police find the body of a 30-year-old woman in the Ottawa River

The body of Fanny Mantha had been recovered near the Leblanc Marina in the Ottawa River, in end of the day on June 21, 2020, after she fell from the boat piloted by the offender.

Firefighters found the pilot unconscious on his boat, which was out of control and circling in the water.

After regaining consciousness, the pilot informed firefighters that a second person was on board and had fallen into the water.

Mother of two children, Fanny Mantha was a daycare technician at École des Cavaliers, an establishment of the Center de services scolaire des Portages-de-l'Outaouais located in the Aylmer sector.
