Trinidad & Tobago: Miracle at Morne Diablo: Fishermen survive 5 days lost at sea

Missing fishermen Shaquille Charles, Walter Whiteman and Frank Sandy, who disappeared after sailing off from Guayaguayare last Friday, have been found alive.

The fishing pirogue, the Express was told, floated ashore at Morne Diablo beach at around 9.30am on Tuesday.

This was confirmed by boat owner Matthew Kissoon.

In a brief interview with the Express, Kissoon said he received a call from the men at around 10am.

“I can confirm they were found alive. I spoke to all three of them myself. They are not injured just a little dehydrated,” he said.

Kissoon was told that the boat engine failed out at sea and the vessel drifted for almost five days.

The men were found around the same time their family members began gathering at Guayguayare Fishing Port to pray for their safe return.
