Three men are dead and three others were taken to Western Memorial Regional Hospital after a boat went down yesterday near Quebec’s Lower North Shore. Quebec police Sgt Huges Beaulieu says it was a fishing vessel from Blanc Sablon with five men and one woman onboard. Beaulieu says the boat was overcome by water in high waves. He says the ship went down 25 kilometres off shore in the Gulf of St. Lawrence around midnight on Sunday. Beaulieu says the Canadian Coast Guard and an Armed Forces Helicopter completed the rescue around 7:30 yesterday morning.
