Sunken boat at Awa Blanku (Oostpunt)

Sunken boatWILLEMSTAD - A 'roll on/roll off ship' has been laying on the seabed off the coast of Oostpunt (east point) since yesterday. The boat left Trinidad on October 12 on its way to Venezuela, but shortly thereafter capsized.

It drifted to Curaçao. Four passengers were rescued, but a fifth crew member is missing and is probably still in the wreck. Rescue workers are trying to find the body today. The location of the sunken ship is marked with lights to prevent collisions.
