A fishing boat flipped over when a crab trap got stuck on the ocean floor as fishermen were hauling it in near Little Port. A Fisheries Department patrol vessel found the overturned boat and pulled two survivors from the water. A third survivor was later found clinging to two empty gas cans about three kilometres from the boat. A Canadian Coast Guard vessel recovered the body of the fourth fisherman near the scene.
