A sailboat ferrying about 50 passengers between two Haitian towns capsized in the Caribbean Sea, and at least 15 people drowned, a survivor said. The survivor, Jeansly Jean-Baptiste, said in a Radio Nationale broadcast interview that the sailboat L'Aviron, which operated as a ferry, sank off the village of Tiburon in southwestern Haiti on Thursday. News of the incident was delayed because of poor communications with the remote area, 140 miles west of the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Rescue boats plucked bloated bodies from the sea Friday as hopes faded for discovering more survivors from this week's ferry disaster off Haiti. The U.S. Coast Guard announced late Friday afternoon that it had suspended its search for survivors. Five Coast Guard cutters and several aircraft had been involved in the hunt off Haiti's southwestern coast. Officials may never know how many people were crowded onto the Neptune when the overloaded 39-year-old converted freighter sank Tuesday night.
