St Lucian reportedly aboard Martinique boat rescued at sea

A Martinique boat that was recovered this week after spending 23 days adrift also had a St Lucian on board, according to Martinique media reports.

The identity of the St Lucian is unknown at this time.

The boat was recovered on Monday by the cruise ship, “Adventure of the Seas” which sighted the fishing vessel “Loyalty” 800 kilometers off the coast of St. Lucia, reports say.

French news website 1ere said there were two people on board the vessel when it was rescued; Martiniquan, Ismaël Némorin and an unidentified St Lucian.

A third Martinique national, Christophe Kimper, reportedly threw himself into the sea after experiencing hallucinations.

The rescued men reportedly arrived in Curaçao on Tuesday, June 13.

Ismaël Némorin was taken to the Consulate of France from where he has been speaking to French journalists. The location of the St Lucian is unknown.

The boat was heading to St Lucia from Martinique. It experienced engine failure around 49 kilometers off the coast of St Lucia, Némorin said.
