Newfoundland skipper tried to throw woman overboard during fishing trip

Trent John White was convicted of aggravated assault, assault and damage to property in connection with incidents that occurred while he was skipper of a vessel participating in the 2017 turbot fishery. The 65-foot vessel had left Rocky Harbour for the Labrador Sea near Red Bay to take part in the fishery that summer. It was in the Strait of Belle Isle that White tried to throw the woman — who was also his girlfriend — overboard. Two other crew members who testified at White’s trial told the court they were in the wheelhouse when they heard the woman yelling; one of the men described it as a “desperate scream for help.” >click to read<09:39
