An infant suspected of having a seizure led B.C. Ferries to turn around the Spirit of British Columbia Sunday afternoon, leading to a delay of 74 minutes on the Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen run.

The vessel had left Swartz Bay, but returned to the dock to get the child to medical help.

It was “deemed medically necessary to turn ship around,” B.C. Ferries spokeswoman Deborah Marshall said. The vessel was full. B.C. Ferries said that all traffic is expected to be carried by the end of the day.

“We hope for a speedy recovery for the child,” Marshall added.
