Tug Sinks In Northumberland Channel - Nanaimo

 tug sinks near nanaimo
In good weather and for no apparent reason a collision between two tug boats has sent one to the bottom of Northumerland Channel.

No one was injured in the incident which saw crew plucked from the water by the other tug. This CBC article reports the Nanaimo Port Authority is helping monitor environmental impact as the tug had about 800 litres of fuel onboard when it went down.

The Albern (sunk) and CT Titan are owned by the same company and were enroute to home base for a crew change when the incident occurred. The larger vessel C.T. Titan apparently overtook the smaller vessel causing the incident.
