Overloaded RIB

Three lunatics capsized a RIB off the Cork coast this morning at 6.30 am. Two were rescued and one is still missing. They found one tonne of cocaine floating around in packages. Its still being picked up by RNLI. Its value is €70m.

Overloaded? I would have thought it would have been more stable - maybe one of them sneezed???

Is sympathy due to the missing person I wonder???

Even more important - who gets salvage rights.............

terrible news for sure but to be honest i am not bothered in the slightest if someone dies trying to smuggle drugs...expecially that quantity......probably saved a lot of kids lives in the process.
