Coast Guard Rescues HaItians At SeaAs many as 40 Haitian migrants were feared dead after their ship bound for the Turks and Caicos Islands capsized in the Caribbean off Haiti’s north coast, the U.S. Coast Guard said on Friday.

At least 21 dead bodies have been recovered since the ship went down early on Thursday morning, according to the Haitian government.

“The Haitian Coast Guard rescued 12 survivors but advised that 19 were still missing,” the U.S. Coast Guard said in a statement.

A U.S. Coast Guard rescue helicopter crew joined the search on Friday morning, scouring Haiti’s north coast between the cities of Cap Haitien and Port de Paix, Haiti, but did not find any signs of life, the Coast Guard added. via | Reuters
