Alert Islanders noticed an overturned SeaDoo between Dorval Island and the Chateauguay shore. Two passengers were waving for help while the weather worsened. Emergency calls to 911 were made but it was the quick action of  Dorval Island Captain, Robert Acquin and an Island resident that saved two young ladies in distress.  The pictures below show the scene at the dock on the Dorval side as police and coast guard responded to the call.
