Coast Guard searching for 39 people whose boat reportedly capsized near Florida coast


A Coast Guard vessel docks in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Nov. 22, 2021. The Guard says it is searching for 39 people who went missing after their vessel reportedly capsized on Saturday.

The Coast Guard said the missing appear to have been part of a “suspected human smuggling venture” that took off from Bimini, Bahamas, a small island roughly 55 miles east of Miami.
