BOAT FLIPS PUTS 9 IN WATER



A boating accident near Entrance Island resulted in 9 people ending up in the water Monday afternoon. Apparently for reasons not yet clear the boat flipped spilling the occupants into the chilly water, where they were rescued by the Entrance Island light keeper.

They were brought to the inner harbour docks by the Port Authority vessel where several were treated for hypothermia and given dry clothing.

The cause of the accident will be under investigation by Transport Canada Marine Safety. The above photos show two ambulances in attendance and several people being treated on the pier after coming off of the Port Authority vessel.
