The catamaran carrying 98 passengers and 10 crew members sank off the Punta Leona beach resort after emitting a distress signal, public security ministry spokesman Jesus Urena said. The cause of the accident is not yet known. Costa Rica has been experiencing exceptionally strong winds this week, according to the National Meteorological Institute. Costa Rican Vice President Ana Helena Chacon identified the dead as a 68-year-old woman from the United States, a Canadian woman aged 70 and an 80-year-old British man. Survivors said they were handed lifejackets by staff shortly before the boat sank and were left stranded in the ocean as they waited to be rescued.
