Unique border crossing method
An American man is facing two months in jail for trying to cross the border on an air mattress.
The Crown says 25-year-old John Bennett told police he had tried to cross the border at Calais, Maine, Wednesday by land but was denied entry. So he went to Walmart, bought and air matress, blew it up and tried to float across the St. Croix River. He was worried about his pregnant Canadian girlfriend. Bennett pleaded guilty in court in Saint John yesterday.
