Sonorans survive Baja boat accident

Union Democrat staff

Steve Sloneker, 65, left, of Sonora, and fellow fisherman Ross Anderson, 63, listen to a representative of the U.S. consulate, Thursday, after surviving the capsized fishing vessel, the Erik, in San Felipe, Mexico on Sunday.

Seven U.S. tourists are still missing four days after their boat

capsized near this town as the Mexican navy and the U.S. Coast Guard

expand their search in the Gulf of California.

Most of the 27

passengers on board the ship were Northern California men who traveled

to the gulf for an annual Independence Day fishing trip.
