The US Coast Guard recovered two more bodies over the weekend from a lift boat that capsized in the Gulf of Mexico earlier last week. Six people were initially rescued from the vessel, with almost a dozen missing, which was supporting underwater oil and gas operations in the region. The accident is one of the worst maritime disasters in the Gulf in recent memory.
