A fun-filled Easter boat ride ended in tragedy yesterday evening with two persons dead and several others hospitalised.

The police said late yesterday evening a marine patrol vessel was in the vicinity of Lime Cay where the boat capsized. The marine police rushed to the passengers' rescue but were too late to save one man and a woman.

Some 20 other persons, including six children, were taken to hospital, with at least two persons sustaining life-threatening injuries.

Up to press time, the police were reluctant to release the names of the deceased as they were waiting on their next of kin to be informed, but said that the victims were from 3 Goffe Way, Kingston 11.
