Crews of a BC Ferries vessel came to a person’s rescue Tuesday night near Fanny Bay.
According to corporate communications manager Astrid Chang, the crew of the Baynes Sound Connector were asked by the Coast Guard to respond to a vessel in distress at around 6:40.
The boat in question turned out to be a nine-metre sailboat and one person was in the water.
Using a rescue boat, the ferry company says two crewmembers responded and were able to pull the person from the water. They were then taken to the dock where emergency health services were waiting.
The incident delayed the ferry by about one hour and BC Ferries thanks their customers for their patience and understanding.
