Coast Guard, Seacor Marine to Hold Press Conference on Response Efforts
Authorities involved in the Seacor Power response efforts will speak with the press on Monday afternoon.
According to KLFY, U.S. Coast Guard Commander Will Watson, Seacor Marine President John Gellert, and Marine Accident Investigator Andrew Ehlers will address members of the media at a press conference scheduled for 1 p.m. today (April 19).
The presser will take place at the Greater Lafourche Port Commission in Cut Off, Louisiana after a weekend that was brimming with frustration over the Seacor situation online.
Both strangers and loved ones of those missing took to social media, suggesting that officials weren't exhausting every option when it came to recovery efforts.
As of this morning, five bodies have been recovered from the water as divers continue to search the ship, level by level.
We will be providing confirmed updates as we receive them and a recap of the press conference later today.
