On Wednesday, the U.S. Coast Guard called off its search for survivors from the El Faro cargo ship, which went missing near the Bahamas after losing power and propulsion and is believed to have sunk during Hurricane Joaquin. The ship left Jacksonville, Florida, on Thursday, headed for Puerto Rico with 33 crew members — 28 from the United States, five from Poland. The body of one person was found Monday by rescuers, as well as a battered lifeboat. President Obama issued a statement thanking everyone who worked “so tirelessly, on the sea and in the air, day after day, in the massive search for survivors,” and said the government will fully support the investigation taking place “because the grieving families of the El Faro deserve answers and because we have to do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our people, including those who work at sea.”
