NAIN, N.L. – A Nain man has been charged for allegedly operating a vessel while impaired causing bodily harm.
According to a RCMP release, police responded to a boating accident at the Nain wharf at around 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, July 10.
As a result, a female passenger was taken to hospital in Happy Valley-Goose Bay with non-life threatening injuries.
The man, 35, has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Nain Provincial Court on Sept. 5, 2018.
The RCMP reminds boaters that driving impaired on the water is no different than driving a car impaired and has the same consequences.
