Canadian man killed, daughter raped by Pirates in Honduras

A Canadian man was killed and his daughter was raped when their boat was attacked last week in Honduras, police said Saturday.

Police found the stranded boat in a lagoon near the northwestern port of Tela, according to NewsCore.

Milan Egrmajer, 58, and his daughter Myda Egrmajer, 24, had been cruising the Caribbean Sea when they took shelter in a lagoon near Tela because of bad weather.

Pirates boarded the ship and shot Milan four times while Myda hid, the Canada National Post reported.

Myda was able to scare off the pirates with a shot of a flare gun, her cousin, Eric van Riesen told the National Post.
