one dead, four missing
One person is dead and four others still missing after a boat involved in a race around the Farallon Islands ran aground this afternoon.The boating accident involving a Sydney 38 named the Low Speed Chase was reported around 3 p.m., according to U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Levi Read. It is looking very unlikely that any of the four missing will be found alive.
A Coast Guard helicopter was able to rescue two people from the rocks on the islands this afternoon, and an Air National Guard helicopter rescued another person, Read said.A fourth person pulled from the water has been pronounced deceased, and another three people are still unaccounted for.The Coast Guard has two boats on the scene, still searching for the boat’s remaining occupants.Story thanks to ABC.
