Sea of Cortez Tragedy - Sinking of Sportfishing Boat


I am so saddened by the sinking of the sportfishing boat "Erik" our of San Felipe with 43 people aboard including US fisherman and a Mexican crew. Most survived by swimmming to shore or being rescued by local pangueros or even a US father/son our fishing, but 7 are still missing.

The families have set up a Facebook page and a blog to keep updated and also let you know how to help. They are accepting donations to to send down people to keep the search going when the Mexican and US stop.

Click on the links and see if you can help.
