Lost at sea: 2 Americans, 6 others rescued off the coast of Honduras

- The Washington Times - Thursday, July 4, 2013

Two Americans, a Canadian and five Hondurans who disappeared days ago in the Caribbean Sea were found and rescued on Wednesday.

The speedboat they were in had drifted about five miles off the coast of Santa Elena, the Latin American Herald Tribune reported.

Rescued were Americans Leon Coello, 18, and Amber Burkelt, 16. Also saved were six others, ages 28, 25, 22, 20, 19 and 16, the Tribune reported.

"We still don't know what the health condition of the people is. We know that they are dehydrated because they have had no water in four days," one emergency responder said, in the Tribune.
