Seaduced vessel and passengers flip during rough sea

A group of divers traveling in a vessel chartered by Ramon’s Village Dive Shop are tonight lucky to be alive following a boating accident which occurred a mile and a half from San Pedro Town, off the coast of Ambergris Caye.  This morning, shortly after eleven o’clock, a thirty-seven foot boat, the property of Seaduced by Belize, overturned in an area known as Tuffy Channel.  The sea conditions earlier today were choppy and the rolling waves crashed into the skiff causing it to capsize.  Swift response from other boaters in the area prevented serious injuries and casualties.  While the mishap went unreported, News Five understands that tourists onboard the sunken vessel were immediately spirited to Ramon’s Village Resort.  The boat was later recovered by a team of divers with assistance from the Belize Coast Guard.
