Missing fisherman feared drowned

Friday, April 21 2017

COAST Guard divers yesterday continued their search for a 25-year-old fisherman who disappeared in waters off Orange Valley, Carapichaima on Tuesday night.

He has been identified as Samuel John of Henry Street, Orange Valley. Police said that at about 7 pm John and another man went out to sea near the fishing port in a pirogue and then transferred to a trawler. Police said the men had gone to do repair work on the trawler and while doing so, a rope which was fastened from the boat to the trawler became loose. The police were told that John jumped into the sea to stop the pirogue from drifting away. It was there he got into difficulties and disappeared.

Speaking to Newsday yesterday John’s cousin Jerome Mendoza, 30, said he believes the waters may have been rough.

“My cousin has been a fisherman for the past ten years, so I know something went wrong in the waters,” he said. Mendoza said he was informed that the man who accompanied John could not swim and was unable to enter the sea. “He told us he heard Sammy cry out for help, but he could do nothing to save him and by the time he was able to get help it was too late.

When help came and everyone used their flashlights to search for Sammy he was gone.” Mendoza said relatives believe John drowned but are hoping to recover his body to get closure.

“Everyone is still in disbelief that he is gone. It is really sad to know what happened.”
