The Canadian Coast Guard is scouring English Bay for signs of a man who fell overboard from a commercial ship Friday morning.
The man fell from the vessel around 9:15 am, Coast Guard spokesperson Michelle Imbeau told Daily Hive.
Two Coast Guard boats from Kitsilano, a Coast Guard hovercraft, a helicopter from the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Comox, the Vancouver Police Department’s marine unit, and a federal government plane are all searching the water to find the man.
Imbeau said she couldn’t provide more details because the situation is still unfolding.
