Greek American found dead after boat capsized

The body of a missing 68-year-old Greek American was found on Saturday afternoon after his boat capsized on Friday afternoon in the sea region south of the island’s complex of Oinousses.

Greek coast guard authorities reported that three more persons were on the same boat among them the 24-year old daughter and the 22-year old son of the dead man along with his 68-year old friend.

The woman was found safe in the same sea region early on Saturday by a fishing boat and informed that the other three persons that were with her in the boat were missing. After a while, a coast guard vessel located and rescued the 68-year old friend of the woman’s father.

Three coast guard vessels, a Greek navy ship, three private vessels and a Greek army helicopter are taking part in the rescue operation to locate the missing 22-year old brother of the woman.
