Seven Missing After Mexican Boat Accident

Seven U.S. tourists remain missing after a fishing-boat accident off the coast of Mexico Sunday. A flash storm upended the boat, which carried 27 passengers and 16 crew members. One man’s body has been recovered; rescue workers, meanwhile, said they are extending their search on Monday because they believe people could still be alive in the warm, calm waters. One survivor swam eight miles over 12 hours to finally reach the shore.
