VICTORIA — The BC Coroners Service says three men who died when their fishing boat sank off British Columbia's coast lived on central Vancouver Island.
Fifty-five-year-old Wesley Hagglund was the skipper of the Caledonian, and a resident of Duncan.
His engineer and deckhand were both from Port Alberni and have been identified as 48-year-old Keith Standing and 41-year-old Doug White.
Their 33-metre dragger was about 55 kilometres west of Estevan Point, north of Tofino, when it capsized and sank.
The coroner says the bodies were recovered over 18 hours, and a surviving fourth crew member was rescued by the coast guard and taken to hospital.
The Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre has said the crew was hauling in nets when the ship listed, capsized and sank on Saturday.
