Two crew members on a bulk carrier anchored in Vancouver’s English Bay were seriously injured after a lifeboat unexpectedly fell into the water during a drill on Tuesday. Both crew members were on the lifeboat when it was released from the ship, and it was sinking when rescuers were called. The Canadian Coast Guard, the Vancouver Police Department’s marine unit and the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority all responded to the mayday call. A rescue vessel was on scene within 10 minutes and paramedics treated the two crewmen for significant injuries, but both are in stable condition.
