Detroit River Fake Mayday Calls
For more than two years, emergency response officials in charge of the Detroit River have been receiving Mayday calls, causing distress for responders on both sides of the river border. But the problem isn't that a lot of boats are sinking. The problem is the calls are hoaxes. And with a new boating season coming up, officials are worried the fake calls are going to start up again.
