Port Colborne Man Rescued from Sinking Boat

July 16, 2019

Over 500 boats gathered for a party but one from Port Colborne didn't make it home.

Norfolk OPP had to rescue 5 people from the sinking boat which was operated by a 46-year-old man from Port Colborne.

OPP say the boat was extremely overloaded.

The boats gather every year for a party near Turkey Point, about 2 hours west of Port Colborne.

OPP says charges are pending against the man for operating an unsafe vessel.
