The fishing vessel Shawn and Gary found itself in dire condition off Liverpool, Nova Scotia. The Shawn and Gary had just started fishing a few hours after lobster season started when it suffered a leak and began to sink. The two crew on board sent out a distress call before having to abandon ship into the vessel’s life raft. The two men were quickly rescued by the nearby fishing boat Patty and Andy. No reports of injuries. The Canadian Coast Guard vessel G. Peddle arrived on scene a short time later. The Shawn and Gary was last reported as submerged with just a small portion of the bow above water. The cause of the sinking was not reported.
