A group of fishermen pose for a photo before shipping out on their annual Fourth of July trip. Their 115-foot catamaran, the Erik, capsized around 2:30 a.m. July 3 with a total of 44 passengers and crew aboard after it was hit by two giant waves, according to Capt. Benjamin Pineda Gomez of the Mexican Navy.
One U.S. tourist died in the accident and seven are still missing. The identity of the dead man has yet to be released. Other passengers and crew were rescued by Navy ships and nearby vessels. Pictured from left; Les, Albert, Lee, Mike, Gene, and Don.
