Two men die in a Fishing Boat Accident in Inverness County

RCMP say a 58-year-old man and a 39-year-old man both from Cape Breton  died just after 6 a.m. Saturday morning when the 9-meter fishing boat they were on capsized less than 100 meters from shore in Colindale, near Port Hood.   A third adult 18-year-old man on board swam safely to shore.

The investigation into the incident is being undertaken by the Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education.
