Costa Rica Authorities Rethink Reaching The Sunken Catamaran


QCOSTARICA – Costa Rica authorities are looking again at the idea of reaching the sunk Pura Vida Princess tourist catamaran in the Pacific Ocean, to collect information and forensic evidence of what occurred in the accident of January 8.

The boat sits at a depth of 150 metres off the mid Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

Authorities seem to have changed their mind and will now be looking to the United States to provide naval experts and special equipment that can take images and collect evidence for the investigation, which so far has a full documentation on the company that owns the vessel, the statements from the captain and crew, weather reports and sea conditions.

The Forensic Examiner confirmed that three elderly victims died from drowning and not from an infarction as was first believed.

The Pura Vida Princess with a 99 passengers and 10 crew sank on its way to Tortuga Island shortly after leaving dock at Playa Herradura, near Jaco.

All survived the accident save three: two elderly women and an elderly man.
