Update on Haitian Boat Rescue

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

A makeshift sailboat carrying close to 200 people capsized off the coast of the Turks and Caicos Islands. At least fifteen are dead. The boat was carrying Haitians aiming to make the U.S. coastline in Miami and had been at sea for three day before hitting a reef. Lieutenant Commander Matt Morlag, spokesman for the U.S. Coastguard in Miami, joins us with an update on the continuing search.

"It's dangerous from the minute they leave the shore until the minute they are safely on board our vessels. It happens all-too-often. And as in this case, many times we see death involved in it."
