Video: Chappy Ferry Makes Emergency Run During Irene
The ferry was closed on Sunday due to the storm—with one exception, due to a medical emergency.
The Chappaquiddick ferrry shut down Saturday night in anticipation of Tropical Storm Irene's arrival. Service wasn't expected to resume until Monday morning, leave Chappaquiddick residents with no means of transportation to the other side of Edgartown. But duty calls, especially when there's a medical emergency at hand. William Waterway sent in this great video of an emergency ferry trip on Sunday, following news that a young boy had broken his arm and needed medical attention.
