RBDF discovers another body in Ragged Island chain

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) reported yesterday that another body believed to be a Haitian national was found in waters off Double Breasted Cay by military divers, and a “shipwrecked vessel” was found on the cay’s northern tip.

This is now the fourth body the RBDF has found in the Ragged Island chain, which they believe to be linked to the group of 31 migrants that had been discovered between Maycock Cay and Double Breasted Cay last week.

The group reportedly left Haiti on January 10, with varying reports that they capsized around January 13 and survived on the cay for five days.

According to the RBDF, the latest body was brought to New Providence early yesterday morning and turned over to the coroner’s office.
