US Vessel Is Off The Reef
And keeping it on the environment, On Last week Thursday, we told you about the 40 foot US vessel which ran aground on the reef just east of San Pedro town.
It happened on Wednesday night at around 7 o'clock, when the vessel, Connie Sue, started having engine problems. Her captain, 66 year-old Roger Day, who was heading to the United States from Guatemala, immediately radioed in for help, and he was rescued by the employees of Amigos del Mar.
But, the damage was done to the reef which was raked by the ship. The Authorities have since taken it off the reef, and the captain, Roger Day has been taken before the court for the incident. We understand that a preliminary damage assessment has been done, and it has been submitted to the court as well.
