Coast Guard, Mexican Navy Still Searching For Seven From Sunk ERIK Off Mexico

American tourists were thrown into the Gulf of California after a flash storm upended their boat early Sunday, July 3. The 115-foot vessel, the ERIK sank about 60 miles south of San Felipe in Mexico during a weeklong fishing vacation for the boaters. The vessel reportedly sank with 44 people aboard.

As of early Monday morning, 37 of the people had been recovered from the water after clinging to coolers, rescue rings and life vests for more than 16 hours. One has been reported to be deceased.

The search continues, however, for the remaining seven boaters who are not yet accounted for. The US Coast Guard has teamed up with the Mexican Navy in the search, covering over 1000 miles in the last few days. Although many fear these seven, too, may be deceased, Mexican Navy Captain Benjamin Pineda Gomez said that with the warm weather and water temperature, it is still possible that those missing may be alive.
