On Web page B4 within the Aug. 31 Bangor Day by day Information is a narrative in regards to the latest Maine State Ferry Service rescue of a kayaker. Congratulations to the crew for being alert and offering help that clearly saved a life.

The story learn, nevertheless, that “…they sprang into motion, delivering passengers to Lincolnville earlier than doubling again to assist.” My query is that this — did they actually go unload passengers earlier than checking on an overturned boat? Or did the reporter get one thing incorrect?  

In the event that they delivered passengers first, their priorities are skewed and I take again my congratulations!
