From CFTK News: “A local man is lucky to be alive after his boat sank in Prince Rupert’s harbor this afternoon. The man had docked his 20 foot charter boat when waves ceated by the arriving cruiseship, caused it to rock so violently, it tipped over. The man couldn’t jump off the boat fast enough and ended up rolling under the water along with the boat. He held his breath and rolled under the dock, until he was pulled out of the water unharmed. His boat wasn’t so lucky, it sank. No one was harmed and the incident is currently under investigation. ”
