At least 34 people were feared dead after a boat caught fire off Santa Cruz Island, California, early Monday morning, officials have confirmed.
Fox affiliate KTTV earlier confirmed there were nearly three dozen fatalities, but Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr Matthew Kroll told Fox News the 34 people were unaccounted for from a commercial diving ship. The captain of the boat was helping with the rescue. Four other people were rescued. Lt. Cmdr Kroll later confirmed the ship sunk near the north shore of Santa Cruz Island after taking on water.

Don't they just use air, not oxygen, in the tanks.
Biden, is that you? Do you also prefer truth over facts?
I don't understand it. How could a boat with a bunch of SCUBA divers on board have so many fatalities? Why wouldn't they abandon ship and jump in the water?
On the evening of August 10, members of US Coast Guard Station Barnegat Light responded to reports of a boat fire that broke out somewhere off the coast of Harvey Cedars. There were three people aboard the 20 foot boat, according to Seth Johnson of the US Coast Guard Fifth District.
The three individuals aboard jumped into the water and were rescued by USCG members on a towboat.
