Lifeboat drill accident injures two crew members in Vancouvers’ English Bay

According to a CBC report, two crew members on the Panamanian-flagged 78,819 DWT bulk carrier Blue Bosporus, were seriously injured in English Bay, Vancouver. The 12-year-old vessel was conducting a routine drill when the lifeboat  unexpectedly released.

The Coast Guard’s Marine Communications and Traffic Services (MCTS) issued a mayday. The Canadian Coast Guard responded, along with the Vancouver Police marine unit and Vancouver Port Authority. A vessel from the Kitsilano Coast Guard vessel was on the scene in 10 minutes and was supported by the Sea Island hovercraft Siyay (Canadian Coast Guard photo) and paramedics treated the two injured people for “significant injuries.” According to B.C. Emergency Health Services, the patients were taken to hospital in serious condition, but they are both stable.
