El Faro Crew Names: Who Was on the Sunken Cargo Ship?

The Coast Guard says it believes a missing cargo ship, El Faro, sunk in the Atlantic Ocean during Hurricane Joaquin. The ship was sailing from Jacksonville, Florida, to Puerto Rico, according to Tote Inc., El Faro's American owner.  The Coast Guard suspended its search for survivors Wednesday night. The crew included 28 Americans. The ship set out from Jacksonville on a trip to Puerto Rico on Tuesday, September 29. Its last reported position was near the Bahamas. Captain Michael Davidson sent a satellite distress message from the ship, reporting that it was taking on water and at a 15-degree list, the Coast Guard said. That was the last time the ship was heard from. Rescue crews found a life ring and other debris on Sunday. The ship's owners, TOTE Inc., said Tuesday that the ship had mechanical issues and could not make it through the storm.
