Donald David Paul Bezanson was mentioned in an article that appeared in National Post (Toronto, Ontario) on 31 August 1999:
HALIFAX -- High waves whipped up by hurricanes off the U.S. coast may have contributed to the deaths this weekend of a man and his eight-year-old daughter, who were swept off a rock and drowned at a popular Halifax Harbour lookout spot.
Donnie Bezanson, 38, and his daughter, Kendra, were pulled from the icy waters off Herring Cove on Sunday.
Mr. Bezanson had taken Kendra and his younger daughter, Kalya, 4, for an after noon walk along the rocky shoreline when police believe the two were washed into the Atlantic by a particularly high wave.
The waves were running as high as three metres in Herring Cove and other communities along Nova Scotia's southern coast on the weekend, and meteorologist Ken Kirkwood said two hurricanes currently raging well to the south proba bly contributed to the tragedy: "We're ex periencing some high waves along with some brisk winds which can make for pretty powerful swells."
High waves nearly claimed another life at Queensland, a beach about 45 minutes from Halifax. Police say a woman was tossed by a wave and struck her head on sand or rocks.
A lifeguard pulled her from the water and she was taken to hospital.
