French authorities have recovered the bodies of three of four men who had been missing since the sinking of a St-Pierre-Miquelon cargo vessel off the south coast of Newfoundland on Dec. 2. French searchers used a submersible vessel to pull the bodies out of the ship, which was under 130 metres of water. The fourth body could not be found.
The Cap BlancThere are no plans to salvage the ship. The 36-metre ship, known as the Cap Blanc, was travelling from Argentia, N.L. to the French-owned St-Pierre-Miquelon islands with a load of road salt when it sank in rough seas.
