Nine People Rescued After Boat Sinks Off Saint Lucia


Emergency responders rescued nine people on a catamaran after the vessel sank off Saint Lucia Tuesday, Martinique media reports say.

According to the reports, passengers, including tourists, boarded the vessel for a relaxing cruise when it collided with another boat.

An investigation is currently underway to determine the circumstances surrounding the collision.

However, Martinique 1 Ere reported it appeared that while returning to Martinique, the catamaran, which suffered a leak, began to sink nearly 30 kilometers from the coast of the French Caribbean island.

French emergency personnel, supported by a helicopter, arrived minutes after receiving a distress call and carried out the rescue mission.

There were no reports of injuries.

  1. Great job and team work FF, an …another boating accident a deadly jet ski now this!? People need to slow down.

  2. It’s a good thing it was off the cost of Martinique had it been the opposite St Lucia would not be able to respond in this efficient way

  3. thank goodness it sank near Martinique cause they have the necessary equipment like that helicopter cause if these people had to wait for our personnel they would have all been dead

  4. You’re all a bunch of Einstein’s there. Beauties. Off lucia that go down 30 kilometer roughy 19 miles from Martinique. Maybe 5-6 miles from lucia. But yes thanks to their rescue efforts you have a point and this a successful outcome. Keep drinking that smart kool aide. Working wonders.

  5. How St.Lycia get involved in that headline?Martinique is about 80 km from St.Lucia….the sinking happened 30 km from Martinique…wow

  6. Again from capitol city to capitol city 80km from cap to south of Martinique maybe 25 miles. So that’s why
