Boat accident near la Gonave, Haiti. Five dead and Five rescued

Heavy wind and high waves sank a boat in Haiti, killing five people. According to the Associated Press, the incident happened on Monday night as the Haitians boat left the island of La Gonave. The ferry was transporting charcoal and banana as it was reported.


For the history, in May, 2008, at least 11 Haitians died after a passenger ferry capsized off southern Haiti.

In February, 1993, a heavily overloaded ferry sank in a storm off the coast of Haiti, drowning most of the 2,000 passengers believed aboard.
