Coast Guard: 2 boaters found 'unresponsive'
Sunday, July 17, 2011
DETROIT (AP) -- The Coast Guard says divers have found two people missing since their boat capsized in Lake Michigan the annual Chicago-to-Mackinac Island race and that the two are "unresponsive."
The Coast Guard did not indicate in its news release whether the two boaters were alive or dead.
Authorities say a Charlevoix County dive team recovered the two boaters about eight hours after the reports the boat had flipped. The boaters' names have not been released.
The other six people aboard the sailboat WingNuts were rescued.
The boat capsized early Monday near the Fox Islands, west of Charlevoix during the Chicago Yacht Club race.
