A boat carrying 20 to 40 would-be Haitian refugees to Florida capsized in shark-infested waters off the Bahamas on Sunday. At least five people died, authorities said. Only three people were known to have reached the safety of a beach off Green Turtle Cay, northeast of Great Abaco Island, said duty officer Rhonda Whaton of the Bahamas Air-Sea Rescue. "It's very gruesome," she said. "Unfortunately, there are sharks very active in the area."
