Shrimp boat crew saves 2 men after float plane crash

Two men are said to be in good shape and good spirits after the float plane they were in crashed during landing in the water near the government dock in Happy Valley-Goose Bay Wednesday evening. They were rescued from the water by some nearby shrimp fishermen. “We got within about a hundred yards [91 metres], I’d say … or maybe closer when the first feller popped up on the pontoon,” said Chris Lethbridge, who was aboard the boat that went out to save them. “[They’re] very lucky the boat was here.” The shrimp fisherman just happened to be staying on their boat Bailey Grace overnight so they could get an early start Thursday morning. >click to read<08:15
