Aug 29 2012
A ferry travelling from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen turned back Tuesday when a passenger suffered a possible heart attack.
B.C. Ferries spokeswoman Deborah Marshall said the ship left Sidney at 1 p.m. and the incident occurred shortly after. The ferry was running about 90 minutes behind schedule but continued trips.
Marshall said she didn't have details on the condition of the male passenger.
