April 12 2005:
The Queen Mary 2, the world's largest luxury liner, altered its course to bring an ailing passenger to St. John's, NL, for treatment. The 340-m-long vessel was too big to squeeze through the harbour entrance, known as The Narrows, and heavy fog barred city residents from even glimpsing the liner. Heavy fog and severe icing had prevented a search-and-rescue helicopter from reaching the ship.
