Coast Guard Finds Lady Mary Sitting Upright On Ocean Floor

The Coast Guard says it has found the location where a scallop boat went down, killing 6 fishermen.

Four of those killed were members of the same Pamlico County family.

The Lady Mary sank during a storm last month off Cape May, New Jersey.

The Coast Guard says it, along with New Jersey State Police ,have verified the location Wednesday.

An external survey done by a remotely operated vehicle shows the Lady Mary sitting upright on the bottom. It did not reveal any evidence of the remaining missing crew members.

Formal hearings on the accident are scheduled to resume on Monday.

    Why is there always a "smarty" in the bunch. One family lost 4 members and two other families lost loves ones. How can U B so insinsitive. My family have been involved in commercial fishing for years and it is a dangerous, sometime unprofitable business. U need to apologize to those families if U are "man" enough to.

    William, that comment was totally uncalled for and shows no class on your part. Hope the family of those who died don't read you comment. The sinking of that vessel and the deaths of those aboard is nothing to joke about.
