'This was a bizarre incident': Man arrested after kayakers struck by log pushed off cliff near Nanaimo:

from the story:
Mounties say a pair of kayakers are lucky to have escaped serious injury after a man pushed a large log over a cliff and onto their boats in the waters off Nanaimo, B.C.
One man has been arrested in connection with the Aug. 6 incident near Jesse Island, at the entrance to Departure Bay.
The kayakers, a 43-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman, told police they were paddling past the island around 6:45 p.m. when someone began yelling at them from the cliff above . . .

That must have been on the north side of the island where, incidentally, there are some really fun features: lots of slots and even and arch you can paddle through. There used to be a really aggressive dog that would bark at me from the top of the cliff and follow me the length of the island. I’ve never seen an aggressive person, though.

This could have been fatal.

Cheers,
Andrew
