It is believed another 35 are dead but un-recovered from Abaco waters where there was engine trouble which set the vessel adrift. The 40ft catamaran rammed the reef, split in half and sank, the Bahamas Tribune report says; adding that on board the boat “all hell broke loose.”
NEMA and the Royal Bahamas Defence Force reported 18 survivors in the ongoing matter where the number on board the ill-fated voyage is put at between 83 and 96 people.

Earlier this week, Roman Catholic Pope Francis asked for prayers for these human smuggling victims from Haiti and their families.
