Fourth Bourbon Rhode Crew Member Confirmed Dead
Bourbon confirmed on Wednesday that the body of a fourth crew member has been recovered following the sinking of its vessel Bourbon Rhode last week. Only three of the 14 Bourbon Rhode crew members have been rescued as the search continues for seven mariners still missing.
On Saturday, three surviving crew members in a lifeboat were spotted by a French search plane and picked up by a nearby commercial vessel.
Several vessels and aircraft continue to scour search zones, Bourbon said in an update today.
An extensive search operation over the past seven days has included the CROSS French West Indies-Guyana (Regional Operational Center for Surveillance and Rescue) and the French Navy, with support of the American authorities.
