US Coast Guard finds no survivors in Haiti shipwreck – Yahoo News


The US Coast Guard said Friday it had found no survivors in its ongoing search off the coast of Haiti where a shipwreck left at least 21 dead and around a dozen missing.

There were about 50 people on board the ship, who had been trying to reach Providenciales Island in the neighboring Turks and Caicos. The ship attempted to return to Haiti after running into bad weather.

A rescue helicopter conducted a flyover at daybreak in the area where the wreck occurred Thursday, at the request of Haitian authorities.

The helicopter crew “conducted a first light search Friday morning, searching between Cap-Haitien, Haiti and Port-de-Paix, Haiti, but did not find anything,” the US Coast Guard said in a statement. via – Yahoo News.
