VPD look for witnesses of boat capsizing

Vancouver police

Vancouver police want to speak to anyone who may have seen a pleasure boat capsize Friday night.

A white, 2008, 17-foot Hourstan Glascraft, powered by a 75 horse power Yamaha outboard motor, capsized off the Burrard Pier close to the Lonsdale Quay around 9 p.m.

Police say five South Asian men were thrown from the boat into the water. Two of the men were wearing lifejackets.

All five were eventually rescued.

Police believe some people who were in the area may have valuable information about what led to the accident.

Anyone with information about this boat is asked to call the VPD marine Unit.
