On Page B4 in the Aug. 31 Bangor Daily News is a story about the recent Maine State Ferry Service rescue of a kayaker. Congratulations to the crew for being alert and providing assistance that obviously saved a life.
The story read, however, that “…they sprang into action, delivering passengers to Lincolnville before doubling back to help.” My question is this — did they really go unload passengers before checking on an overturned boat? Or did the reporter get something wrong?
If they delivered passengers first, their priorities are skewed and I take back my congratulations!
