Lawrence Smith was one of the fishermen called upon to help with the rescue. "All we found was foam. There was a little smell, like sulphur, burnt sulphur. I've been fishing in that area for 45 years. I've never seen any foam like that ever on the water." SOURCE: a documentary titled "Shag Harbour UFO Incident" produced by Ocean Entertainment Ltd.
Norman Smith, another one of the rescuers, says "We came into this foam on the water. It was like orange foam that was on the water. Like bubbly foam. We circled the boat around, we came back into the foam. When we came back into it, I took a small dip net and dipped the dip net down into the water, right into the foam. When I pulled the dip net up out of the foam there was nothing. You couldn't see nothing, totally nothing on the dip net. I've been fishing all my life, and I never ever seen anything like that. I've been up rivers and on lakes, and out on ocean and never ever seen foam like that on the water." SOURCE: History Channel documentary titled "Canada's Roswell Mystery at Shag Harbour".
