Visitors to Peggy's Cove unfazed by warnings despite recent death

Monday, May 2nd 2022, 4:10 pm - A recent death at Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia prompted warnings from officials, but not everyone is heeding them.

You can't miss the signs warning of danger at every entry point at Peggy's Cove, even next to the only road leading into the site: "Keep off the black rocks," it states.

Still, less than three weeks since the last drowning and injury, a group of visitors from B.C. ventured onto the rocks -- seemingly unaware of the imminent danger they were in while slipping along the wet rocks as powerful waves crashed nearby.

At a sandy beach, it's second nature to run to the water and dip your toes in. At Peggy's Cove, you simply have to suppress the urge.

Watch the video above from The Weather Network reporter Nathan Coleman to see the dangers of getting too close to the water at this popular tourist spot and why people need to adhere to the warnings to stay away.
