Two Dominican fishermen found dead after shipwreck

Santiago, DR.– The bodies of two of the three Dominican fishermen missing since Sunday after going out from a Monte Cristi beach were recovered by Dominican authorities off the coast  of Cap Haitien, Haiti’s second largest city.

According to the Monte Cristi emergency  management director, Maximo Ventura, the third fisherman  was found alive but in critical condition. The victims were identified the as Deivy Peralta, 40, and Martires Palomino, the captain of the 23-foot fishing  boat.

Ventura said the authorities and the emergency management office were told that the three fishermen knew that the boat’s motor needed repair  but decided to set out anyway. They also ignored the warning of the  National Meteorology Office that small boats should remain in port due  to prevailing bad weather.
