3 Cuban nationals believe to be lost at sea

Three Cuban nationals have been missing since the cargo vessel, Helga, encountered bad weather and rough waters, which caused it to capsize on Saturday night. Eight others were found floating in life rafts on Sunday morning and the Coast Guard continues its search for Captain Arturo Edrei Garcia and crew members, Nelson Perez Ardao and Alexis Gonzalez Cune. News Five was told today that the search area was extended to include English Caye within the reef, but there has still been no sight of the men. Meanwhile, the eight who were rescued were handed over to the Cuban Ambassador. The crew of eleven was transporting a shipment of salt from Mexico to Honduras.

    It’s a little ironic to me that it’s the Captain and his crew members that are missing.Something is wrong with this picture.
