| No Comments

The bodies of 21 people from the Dominican Republic have been recovered after a migrant ship capsized late Saturday.

The ship that was carrying about 70 migrants from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico capsized and broke apart early Saturday morning, near the town of Sabana del Mar, Dominican Republic.

Of the 70 passengers, 13 were rescued, and 21 bodies have been found, Luis Castro, the Intelligence Director of the Dominican Navy told Time.

More than 30 people remain missing, according to Sabana del Mar's Fire Chief, Jeffrey Pimentel. Authorities are perplexed that more bodies have not surfaced since the accident Saturday, Pimentel said to the Washington Post.
