Saint Lucia Marine Police were part of a massive search and rescue operation Saturday for a missing individual after a boat sailing from Martinique to Saint Lucia capsized.
With nine people on board, the vessel ‘Sé kon sa nou yé’ left Martinique at about 4:00 pm on Friday but reportedly capsized between 7:00 and 10:00 pm.
Eight people were rescued.
According to reports from the French Caribbean Island, a French sailboat, ‘Le Bercail,’ rescued two of them in the Saint Lucia channel.
And six were in the care of the Fort de France-based sea rescue agency SNSM after an aircraft crew spotted them clinging to the hull of the capsized ship.
There are no further details at present.
