A Japanese fishing trawler with 22 people on board was battered by waves four-storeys high and was in danger of sinking about 175 kilometers south of Nova Scotia's Sable Island. A Canadian fisheries officer aboard the trawler, Judith Reeves of Chester, Nova Scotia, said in an interview by satellite telephone that it was a frightening situation and any rescue was still hours away. (They contained the flooding, got the steering fixed, and made it to port with no loss of life.)
