MOB - Four People in the Water 13 Miles off Martinique

Just heard this on the radio and wanted to pass it on. A boat has sunk about 13 miles off the coast of Marinique (didn't get the entire name) at coordinates 12.27N 060.49W.

Looks like this was reported by Trinidad and Grenada Coast Guard. Apparently, they've been in the water all day.

I've been searching the web for more information, but haven't found anything yet.

However, I did find an article about a frenchman who hit a whale singlehanding across the atlantic, and was picked up by a merchant ship after his 35' sailboat sank a few weeks ago.

Sure is nice to hear happy ending once in a while. Hope this one works out that way too.
