Four people died and 25 were injured Sunday after a boat used in a suspected human smuggling operation capsized off the coast of San Diego, authorities said.
The vessel, a 40-foot cabin cruiser, “broke apart” on a reef near Point Loma, west of downtown San Diego, said Lt. Rick Romero of the San Diego Lifeguard Service.
The boat’s operator was in custody, officials said. No one on the vessel has been identified. Crews are scheduled to continue to their search through the night, the Coast Guard said. — NBC
