Rescuers found the second occupant floating in the water and performed CPR before transporting the victim to a local hospital.

Very difficult coming and going in this harbor. Even the huge fishing boats have trouble. Wonder why they don’t fix this problem. I am afraid to go out in the ocean this way. God Bless
