Fisherman dies off Port Credit
Son, girlfriend survive 3-metre swells
3 in water 90 minutes before rescue
By Phinjo GOMBU and Jim WILKES, Staff Reporters
A routine fishing trip for salmon off Port Credit on Lake Ontario turned into a tragedy when a 16-foot aluminum boat suddenly began to draw water and capsized, killing a 55-year-old Georgetown man.
And for almost 90 minutes after the boat sank yesterday morning, Bryan RICHARDS, 27, and his girlfriend Elizabeth SUTTON, 24, hung on for dear life, bobbing up and down in three-metre waves, desperately waiting for help
SUTTON had a life jacket on, while RICHARDS, who didn't, lay flat across a floating seat from the boat, all the while clinging to his dead father. RICHARDS said his father, Albert "Roger" RICHARDS, died within moments of hitting the water. Police said it is unknown whether the father was wearing a life jacket, but his son said he was.
"My dad started panicking," said RICHARDS yesterday from his hospital bed at the Trillium Health Centre where he was being treated for hypothermia.
"I reached over, grabbed him, and as I pulled him back he turned around and said 'I'm cold' and then passed away."
"I knew he was dead. It was just the look on his face."
RICHARDS said the three had headed out on their boat called the Left-Handed Newfie around 7.30 a.m. to take part in a salmon derby. Around 9.30 a.m., just as they were in the process of changing lures on a downrigger system, the boat suddenly began to draw water at the back and went down, stern first, throwing all three into the water.
"It went back, up, down," said RICHARDS, describing how his girlfriend managed to grab on to a life jacket for herself in the nick of time.
RICHARDS said while he bobbed in the waves in a bay just west of Port Credit holding on to his dead father, he tried to keep in touch with SUTTON. Both of them shouted back and forth at each other, encouraging each other to stay conscious and saying they loved each other, he said.
RICHARDS said that throughout the experience, rage built inside him because he had his father in his arms and just wanted to get SUTTON to safety.
"This is a dream and I want it to end right now," he recalled thinking, but since it wasn't, he said he began to think about his mother and his girlfriend's 14-month-old baby.
"I wanted to do more but I couldn't," he said. "I wasn't going to let (my father) go."
Several fishing boats passed by but didn't see them despite the fact that fishing gear was strewn all over the water. One boat finally saw them and immediately radioed a distress signal around 11 a.m.
That was when police and other boaters converged around the scene to mount the rescue.
Both RICHARDS, who works as a shipper and receiver with PL Foods in Georgetown, and SUTTON were taken to the Trillium Health Centre. SUTTON was discharged late yesterday afternoon, while RICHARDS was kept overnight for observation.
RICHARDS said his father, whose passion was fishing, was on disability from a workplace accident in a brake factory that had resulted in his right leg being amputated.
He said his father, whom he called his dearest friend, had taken part in countless fishing derbies in the area over the decades. "All I know is that I won't step on another boat," said RICHARDS. "I may not even go fishing anymore. It was 'our' thing."
Among the first on the scene of the rescue were Peter FAIRWEATHER and Dan LETUAL of Oakville, who found RICHARDS and SUTTON shivering in another fisherman's boat. The son was reaching over the stern, holding onto his father's leg, unable to pull him over the gunwale.
"There was no way to hoist him," said FAIRWEATHER, 42. "He was a pretty big guy."
He said they looped a rope around the drowned man's leg, so the son could be treated by police and paramedics.
"The son was definitely in shock," he said. "That was just his reaction to hold on to him."
FAIRWEATHER said it was a rough day on the lake, with waves nearly three metres high.
"We were bouncing around a lot," he said, adding that in such conditions things can go from good to bad in an instant. "It doesn't take much water in the back of the boat to swamp it."
"If you get hit by a wave sideways, the whole thing goes down in 30 seconds it's gone," said fishing charter operator Brian SLANEY, 45, whose huge boat dwarfs the 16-foot open aluminum craft belonging to RICHARDS. " You have no time to get on your radio and call.
"Wind is a powerful thing, water is powerful. I don't think it would take long for them to start getting into trouble" once the boat started filling with water, he said. "It's a real tragedy."
Another boater said it was "the worst conditions I've ever seen," recalling how the wind-whipped waves pushed his boat's bow "way up into air."
Paul KRISTOFIC, who runs Salmon Strike Charters, was about three kilometres offshore when he heard the mayday call over his radio.
"That's your duty as a boater on the water," he said. "So I pulled the rods up and burned over there as quick as I could."
He saw debris from the sunken boat floating in the water, including two seats later brought to shore by police.
"This is a tight community down here," he said. "It really hits home.
"The water was pretty rough this morning, so you just have to be careful out there."
He called the man a "friendly guy" who hung out at the dock to chat up the charter captains and learn about good fishing spots.
Fishing Friends said Roger RICHARDS' nickname was also the name of his boat. Others said they simply called him Lefty, because his amputated leg had been replaced by a prosthetic one.
SLANEY recalled the man as "a real jovial guy" who loved to prowl the docks near the mouth of the Credit River.
"This is where he liked to be," he said. "That's all we talked about -- boating and fishing.
"It was his passion."
KRISTOFIC said boaters and anglers alike have to be ready for trouble.
"Accidents happen everywhere, on the road and on the water," he said. "So you just have to be careful and make sure you're well-prepared out there for anything.
"A lot of times the water can be pretty cold, so you should wear your lifejacket all the time."
LETUAL was more pointed.
"You're a fool to go out if you're not wearing a life jacket," he said.
