28 Haitians die when boat sinks off Bahamas
28 Haitians killed after their boat sank off the coast of the Bahamas.
Officials said the migrants left Haiti on Saturday were heading toward the Bahamas when something went wrong in coastal waters near the entrance of Marsh Harbour.
Chief Petty Officer Jonathan Rolle of the Royal Bahamas Defense Force says residents of the island of Abaco found four bodies and at least 15 people.
Bahamian forces and the U.S. Coast Guard then launched a search operation that by Sunday afternoon had found at least 28 bodies in and around a ship sunk off the Bahamas near Fowl Cay.
The total rescued also rose to 17.
