Parents of missing West Kingston fisherman sue owner of sunken trawler for negligence

New Year’s Day 2019 was cruel for the family of John Ansay Jr. They learned early that morning that a sudden gale and turbulent seas had overtaken the fishing trawler Ansay worked on. Thirty-one-year-old Ansay and the boat’s captain, Oscar Diaz, Ansay’s uncle, were missing. Diaz had put out a mayday call at 1:30 a.m. as the F/V Mistress began taking on water 2½ miles southeast of Block Island. Rescue crews from the U.S. Coast Guard had fanned out over the area in search of the missing fishermen and the remnants of the 52-foot wooden boat. >click to read< 20:38
