Columbia Navy Search For Missing Passengers In Capsized Boats

Colombia’s navy is searching for an unknown number of people who are missing after two boats capsized off the port city of Tumaco.

At least 14 people – seven of them children – were killed when the boats sunk in the Pacific on Saturday.

The boats were transporting locals from Tumaco to San José Del Guayabo.

There is no record of how many people were on board but survivors say as many as 16 people could still be missing. Thirty-five people, including five children, were rescued from the water, which survivors described as unusually turbulent at the time of the accident.
