A national champion sailor and musician from Guelph, Canada has died.


Margaret Kurvink​, known to most as Molly, died during an iceboating accident on Guelph Lake Wednesday afternoon. Kurvink​, 62, was with her husband Harri Palm when Wellington OPP say the iceboat they were on went through the ice.


Kurvink went into the water around 3:30 p.m. and her husband tried to pull her out, which is when they became trapped in the frigid waters. The couple were stranded approximately 60 metres from shore, police said.


Both were rushed to hospital. Police later reported on Twitter that Kurvink had died.
