Yacht Evacuated Off Cape Sable Island (Canada)

Nine on a 35 foot yacht?

One person is dead, three are missing and two people are in critical condition after a yacht ran into mechanical problems south of Nova Scotia's Cape Sable Island.

A search was continuing Tuesday morning for those who had been aboard the vessel.

Yarmouth Regional Hospital officials said two men pulled from the water were in critical condition, but could not elaborate further on their injuries.

The approximately 35-foot yacht had been carrying nine people, authorities said, when it reportedly rolled, about 150 kilometres off Cape Sable Island, or Cape Island as it's known, on Monday night.
