GALVESTON, Texas Jan. 14, 2020  — One person is dead and two others are missing after a boat crashed in Galveston on Tuesday around 3:35 p.m. approximately 1.5 miles offshore near East Beach. The Coast Guard said  four people were in the water in need of help after the 81-foot fishing boat named Pappy’s Pride and a 600 ft. chemical tanker called the Bow Fortune collided near the Galveston Jetties.

Coast Guard resumed searching for missing crew members of the fishing boat Pappy’s Pride that capsized after the collision near the Galveston jetties. Two fishermen were pulled from the water with the help of Good Samaritans nearby and were transported to the hospital. One of the fishermen died despite CPR efforts, the Coast Guard said.

The search for the remaining two is ongoing. Dense fog was impacting recovery efforts and forced crews to halt search efforts Tuesday night. Recovery operations resumed Wednesday morning. We will update the story as it develops.
