Martinique Fisherman Goes Missing In The Saint Lucia Channel


A search and rescue operation has been underway since Sunday afternoon after a Martinique fisherman fell into the waters of the Saint Lucia Channel.

The Channel is a strait separating Martinique to the north and Saint Lucia to the south.

The circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the Martinique fisherman were not immediately clear.

However, a release from Martinique’s Prefect disclosed that the Antilles-Guyana Regional Operational Surveillance and Rescue Center (Marine Directorate) learned of the incident at 1:05 p.m.

The information triggered a massive air and sea search and rescue operation that included helicopters and privately owned boats.

The search continued on Monday.

  1. Are the fishing boats equipped with the necessary equipment to help save a life, and help in rescuing? Do fishing folks wear a life vest when they are out there on the water? Are the communication equipments up~to~date on fishing boats? I hope he is found.
