Yea but during the rescue and before the wind reports were not of huricane strength or anywhere near to it. So must not have been the cane that broke em.

"Officials with the U.S. Coast Guard said the winds in the area are sustained in the 75 km/h range."

That is 47 mph, well below cane strength and a bare pole mast should not break.
