    Bay of Islands MHA Eddie Joyce was in the town yesterday and met with the families.

    As the investigation continues into an incident in Lark Harbour that claimed the lives of two men yesterday, condolences are starting to pour in. The Miss Jenny, a 23 foot open boat had capsized in the waters near Molly Ann Cove. A mayday call was received at 11 a.m. Upon arrival, the fast rescue craft (FRC) from the CCGS Cape Edensaw recovered two deceased crew members from the water.  The four remaining crewmembers made it to shore.   Due to the shoreline and sea conditions, they could not get to those crewmembers who were recovered by a cormorant and transported to Lark Harbour. They are reported to be in good condition. Bay of Islands MHA Eddie Joyce says thoughts and prayers are with the families. He was in the community yesterday and met with the families. Joyce says the Premier was quick to get involved, among others like MP Gudie Hutchings. Grief councillors are available in the community at the school and town hall.
