Recommended Posts

This touches close to home.


Hope all come out well.


Heard on CBC Radio, the hospitals were gearing up for more survivors, and that they were winching up more people.


Hospitals were gearing up for sever hypthermia (obviously). Weather was horrible.


I keep my fingers crossed for more good new.

wow.....I don't want to speculate too far, but that timeline is pretty scary, from mayday until ditching was only 10 minutes, even if they lost all oil, thats not alot of time untill the disastrous result.



My thoughts go out to those involved in this very tragic time.
