A fisherman was found dead today after his fishing boat failed to return to a community on Newfoundland’s west coast.
The Canadian Coast Guard says another man aboard the fishing vessel was found alive this morning.
The two men were aboard a six-metre open boat that was due back at Sally’s Cove near Gros Morne National Park by 2 p.m. Tuesday.
One man was found alive by a Coast Guard lifeboat at 10:30 a.m. and taken to hospital.
The Coast Guard says the other man’s body was found shortly afterwards.
Coast Guard vessels, a Cormorant helicopter and a Hercules aircraft participated in the search.
