Hospital officials said Saturday that it was too early to tell whether he will make a recovery.
A Saint John couple who successfully pitched their tea business on the CBC Dragons' Den episode that aired Thursday night says their $100,000 deal has fallen through because of a previous agreement their investor had.

Tia Nicholaichuk said she was struck by how quickly the rumours spread on Facebook about Barbara Kentner, the Anishinaabe woman who died this summer after she was struck by a trailer hitch thrown from a moving car in northern Ontario.

A plane approaching Miami International Airport collided with a bird mid-air on Tuesday, November 14, fracturing the plane’s nose and causing the bird to become trapped. Despite the collision, the American Airlines Airbus A319 flying in from Mexico City was able to land safely, according to local reports. While birdstrikes are not uncommon, a bird’s body becoming entangled into the plane is, according to one airport worker. “Normally you might see some feathers and blood but not the entire bird,” the employee told Storyful.
