Seaplane crashes into Vancouver's Coal Harbour

Emergency crews have responded to what appears to be a float plane crash in Vancouver's Coal Harbour waters.

Vancouver Fire Rescue Services Fire Chief Karen Fry says in a post on social media platform X that police and rescuers are at the scene of a "marine incident" in Coal Harbour on the Vancouver waterfront.

Images and videos on social media show what appears to be a small plane partially submerged in the water with a SeaBus and several other vessels nearby.

TransLink spokeswoman Tina Lovgreen says in another social media post that the captain of the SeaBus saw the float plane in the water and "quickly diverted to provide assistance, ready to deploy a life raft."

Lovgreen says the SeaBus was on scene until the vessel was released by the Canadian Coast Guard, and returned to the terminal.

Coal Harbour is the site for Vancouver's downtown seaplane terminal served by carriers such as Harbour Air and Seair Seaplanes.
