Terrifying Moment of Fatal Costa Rica Tourist Catamaran Sinking

A video posted online shows the terrifying moments a tourist boat with more than 100 people capsized off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

The video was filmed by a 21-year-old student who was on the upper deck when the ship capsized and sank.

In the video, you can see passengers donning life jackets before the ship rolled over, sending the people into the water and trapping some under the deck’s canopy. Three people died in the incident, and survivors were left bobbing in the water before what looks like a Maersk feeder ship arrived.   The 100-foot catamaran, operated by the tourist excursion company Pura Vida Princess, was on day trip to Tortuga Island from Marina Los Suenos with 98 passengers and a crew of 10 at the time of the accident.
