‘Sete Mar’ Life Jacket Found

A life jacket from the sunken fishing vessel ‘Sete Mar’ was found in the sea off Calheta today.

Information obtained from the crew regarding the incident, states that the trawler was hit by two waves and then sank several miles off the coast of Ponta do Sol.

The seven fishermen on board were found alive, 124 km southwest off the coast of Porto Santo, having spent four days and three nights on a life raft which had no survival supplies.
