at a water aerodrome in Kitkatla, BC (CAP7) from Prince Rupert/Seal Cove, BC (CZSW) when the
aircraft touched down hard, bounced and landed hard again. In the process, the left wing made
contact with the water. The aircraft settled in the water partially nosed over. There were 7 people
on board and all managed to egress as the aircraft sank. None of the occupants were wearing a
personal floatation device during the flight and none escaped with the available life vests. All 7
persons were rescued by local boaters and three were taken by medevac services to the hospital
with suspected minor injuries.

A good example for all pilots to study concerning what can happen based on real world decision-making when a good alternative option is available compared to the most convenient option.
