Cornibert is still missing.
Jackson Prospere told the Times that according to the information he received, the boat that the two friends were in capsized.
He said he was told that one of the men went under the water and the other tried to save him with tragic consequences for both.
According to Prospere, the family members of the deceased are heart broken.
He described the deceased as a hardworking individual who was ‘hustling’ as a construction worker to help his family.
Prospere said the sea at the time the two friends went on the fishing expedition was ‘real rough’.
He said both men were good swimmers.
However Prospere said he was told that they became entangled in a fishing line which restricted their mobility.
