The Queen Mary 2 luxury ocean liner changed course in response to a distress call early Sunday from a 13-metre pleasure boat off Nova Scotia.

An official with the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Halifax said a pleasure boat about 90 kilometres west of Yarmouth, N.S., sent a distress signal after it had lost power and was taking on water.

The 345-metre Queen Mary 2, which rises more than 60 metres above the waterline, was the closest ship to receive the rescue centre's general distress call and reached the pleasure craft at about 12:45 a.m. AT.
