About 30 Haitians were reported dead and 110 others were rescued, as aircraft and naval vessels scattered to search the waters around Staniel Cay. One survivor was discovered early on Nov. 27, when a Coast Guard aircrew spotted the man on a small island.
Working against stiff winds and rain, a U.S. Coast Guard MH-60 helicopter dropped rescue rafts to survivors before hoisting 13 people to safety on Nov. 26. Additional aircraft and naval vessels from the Coast Guard arrived on the scene, and the Royal Bahamian Defense Force deployed a 108-foot patrol boat to help with the recovery. via | Infosurhoy
