An SOS call Monday purporting that a yacht called “Blind Date”
exploded off the New Jersey coast with 21 people aboard may have
been a hoax.
The U.S. Coast Guard received the distress call at about 4:20 p.m. from
someone claiming they had abandoned ship about 17 miles off Sandy
“There have been no signs of debris and no life rafts. No one has been
found at this time,” Coast Guard spokesman Thomas McKenzie said
three hours after helicopters and rescue boats were dispatched to
search the waters.
“We’ve tried to reach out to the boat without success,” McKenzie said.
