MV Diamond Express formerly known as Cat Island Express, was enroute to Great Harbour Cay in the Berry Islands, departing from Freeport about 9pm Saturday night 10 March. Shortly after 4:00am on Sunday 11th March 2018, police received information from the Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association of a vessel in distress.
Four other occupants–Don Smith, Alan Rolle Jr., Karkin McLuaglir (a Honduran) and Doswell Coakley— are fortunate to be alive after they were rescued but still two men are missing at sea.
We have spoken about the fact that Bahamians tend to not pay attention to the weather. These two men add to the total of 9 people that have died or are missing this year so far from weather related incidents, that could have bene avoided had the people just listened to the warnings and paid attention to them. Very sad.
