Freeport, Grand Bahama — Bahamas Press reported a false tip tonight suggesting three persons from Bimini reroute to Grand Bahama via a vessel had perished in the seas. That earlier report was untrue and we can now report, was premature.
We can confirm the trio was discovered alive and well after missing at sea. Rescue teams, we can confirm, brought them all safely to Deadman’s Reef, just off Grand Bahama two hours.
Bahamas Press apologizes to the family for the added stress caused by our report. We apologize to the Bimini community for not properly crosschecking our initial report and we apologize to our wider international readership for our earlier, inaccurate update.
To all the rescue teams we say a JOB WELL DONE!
