March 15, 2018
Members of the Fairhaven, MA, Fire Department rescued a lobster fisherman who was trapped aboard his boat by downed power lines, according to SouthCoast Today. The incident occurred on Tuesday evening at Union Wharf during the recent nor’easter.
High winds caused a utility pole to break at the end of the wharf, which caused live wires to come crashing down at the edge of the pier.
