Boat Carrying Tourists Capsizes In Senegal Due To Heavy Storm, Killed Four

Boat Carrying Tourists Capsizes In Senegal Due To Heavy Storm, Killed Four

Four individuals died, according to officials and emergency services, after a ship carrying dozens of visitors capsized during heavy storms in Senegal. As three passengers were said to be missing after the accident, the death toll could increase.

The ship was carrying several Senegalese citizens, six French people, two Germans, two Swedes and one individual from Guinea-Bissau, said fire department chief Papa Angel Michel Diatta, turning over in driving rain and a heavy swell on Monday.

All the dead were said to have been Senegalese, officials and emergency services. Two were working in a national park, one was a lady, and the other was a kid, said Diatta.

The ship headed to the islands of Madeleine, the site of a famous offshore national park with visitors traveling from Dakar, the West African country's coastal capital.
