The 55 foot long fishing vessel Atlantic Endeavour was blown ashore near Cow Head, Newfoundland. The fishing vessel was caught in a severe storm with 40 knot winds and 4 meter high waves. The two crew on board sent out a distress call as the vessel struck a rocky shoal and began to take on water. The men took to the life raft tethered to the vessel waiting for rescue. Authorities dispatched a helicopter to the scene who winched the two men to safety. No reports of injuries.
