MIAMI (AP) — Haitians who believe their relatives were among 15 people aboard a boat that capsized off Miami are calling on U.S. officials to release more information about the accident's survivors.
Four women died and 11 people were rescued when the overloaded boat capsized last week 7 miles east of Miami. Six of the survivors, including the boat's captain and a crewman, now face federal charges.
A handful of Haitians joined community leaders Monday in demanding more information about the survivors, saying none of their names has been released. They also are calling on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release the survivors who were detained.
Dieudonne Alcinor is searching for her niece, who she believes was on the boat. Alcinor says she doesn't know if the woman survived or was among the dead.
