CAMPOBELLO ISLAND, N.B. - RCMP say five people had to be rescued after they were thrown overboard when a whale upset their small boat in the Bay of Fundy off New Brunswick.
Police say a group of local residents was watching a pod of whales near Campobello Island on Saturday when one of the finbacks swam underneath them, flipped the boat and dumped everyone into the water.
The crew of a nearby fishing vessel rescued all five people and returned them safely to shore, where emergency personnel were waiting.
Two of the boaters were taken to hospital in St. Stephen, N.B., for non-life-threatening injuries.
RCMP say the people on the boat had access to personal flotation devices, but were not wearing them.
The U.S. and Canadian coast guards were both contacted about the incident.
However, a spokesperson for the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Halifax says their services were not needed.
Have a gander at two of my earlier posts:
It's getting pretty obvious that mother nature is pissed and she's taking names and lookin' to kick a whole lotta ass. It's a bonafide animal uprising. Everybody needs to watch those "Planet of the Apes" movies (except for maybe that Marky Mark one) for a wake-up call and a little look-see into a possible future.
Honestly, do we really believe that those Alaskan Grizzlies are gathering 'cause they really like the fish. Oh No, I tell you. They're just waiting until the year enough of us come together to watch their cute teddy bear antics and then Whamo ... a whole shitload less of us numbnuts running around to bother them.
Remember, at all times, keep at least one eye on that squirrel in the park ... sure as anything, he's plotting your demise.
