Body of fisherman retrieved

On Monday night, we told you about the search being conducted for Edwardo Dominguez, a fisherman from the village of San Andres in the Corozal District. Dominguez was missing since Sunday morning when misfortune struck during a fishing trip to Bacalar Chico near North Ambergris Caye. The skiff on which Dominguez and another fisherman, Ryan Barahona, were making that trip capsized in rough waters about a mile outside of Sarteneja. Barahona managed to make it to shore by holding onto a fuel tank, but there was no sign of Dominguez. Roughly forty-eight hours after he went missing, the worst fears of Dominguez’s family and friends were confirmed when his body was found floating in the waters between Bacalar Chico and Cerros. At around eleven this morning, the body was retrieved from the sea by the Coast Guard and transported to the main pier in Corozal, where it was handed over to the Corozal Police. The family planned to bury Dominguez this evening because of the state of decomposition of his body.
