New Brunswick: 4 rescued from sinking herring boat off Miscou

Herring fisherman Steven Hughes was the first person to arrive at the scene. He said he and his crew were alerted around 05:00 that a boat was taking on water. “There was water over the engines and the engine stalled, so they had no more power for it to advance,” he said. “The water was coming up to the battery, so basically their radio, stuff like that, there was a time limit on that usage.” Hughes said they then called the coast guard and decided to tow the boat. >click to read< 17:41
