Close call for crewmember of the F/V Glutton

The emergency radio call came at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday, when Capt. Beau Gribbin of the F/V Glutton reported that one of his crew had fallen overboard and needed immediate medical attention. William Bowen, 24, had gotten caught in lobster gear and pulled 60 to 70 feet underwater for at least three to four minutes, Gribbin confirmed on Tuesday. “We were almost to the end of setting traps with only three left and he got tangled up and ripped overboard,” he said. “It does happen. Usually the guy gets knocked overboard and surfaces pretty quickly, but in this case Will was stuck.”  >click to read<
