Tourists and crew rescued in Galapagos after boat sinks | app

QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — A boat with 15 tourists and 10 crew caught fire and sank off the Galapagos Islands on Wednesday, but Ecuadorian authorities said all on board were rescued.

The Ecuadorian Navy, in a statement, said authorities ordered a nearby vessel to carry out the rescue after the distressed Cormorant I reported a fire in the engine room. The boat, which had passed all technical checks this year, sank around 7 a.m.
