Noah's Ark: The First Sinking

When Wally Seddon's model of Noah's Ark went to the bottom during a July 1, 2000 Canada Day show in Kanata, Ontario, he wasn't laughing, but everyone else sure was!

"Crossing a series of buoys across the water should be no problem for a boat doing God's work," Wally thought to himself.


Crossing the buoys proved too much even for Noah. The boat capsized and quickly sank, drowning all the animals.


Rescue crews were sent out to look for survivors, but unfortunately, all of Noah's animals perished. Surprising, when the boat was brought to the surface more than a half hour later, the motor and propellors were still spinning. Now that's a good motor!
