Coast Guard Missing cargo ship sank in hurricane
The cargo ship that vanished five days ago near the Bahamas sank in Hurricane Joaquin, the Coast Guard said Monday.
Coast Guard Captain Mark Fedor said the 790-foot container ship El Faro, with 33 people aboard, sank in high winds and heavy seas last week. Twenty eight of the crew were Americans.
"We believe it sank in its last known position on Thursday," he said. "We are still looking for survivors."
