A vessel carrying relief supplies from Saint Lucia to volcano-hit Saint Vincent and the Grenadines sank Saturday afternoon, April 17, 2021.

But another boat saved the three people on board the ‘Sunshine Angels’, according to Marine police in St Lucia.

St Lucia Times reported on April 17, 2021, that Law enforcement officials said the individuals on board at the time the boat sank were the Saint Lucian captain, Mark Clement St Rose, who lives in Saint Vincent, and Vincentian nationals Cafu Guy and Winsbert Salton Harry.

The police disclosed that the boat had cleared Customs in Saint Lucia and was on its way to Saint Vincent when the mishap occurred about 4:40 pm.

They said the vessel sank some 6 nautical miles South West of Saint Vincent.
