On Saturday, the US Coast Guard will conduct a high seas rescue operation for a missing U.S. Coast Guard ship that sank off the coast of New York on Wednesday.
The Coast Guard said in a statement that the Coast Guard cutter “the Bismarck” and its companion vessel the USS Kearsarge are missing in the Bahamas.
The vessel was en route to New York when it lost power and sank.
It’s the second U.s. ship to sink this year.
Earlier this week, a U. of Florida student was arrested on suspicion of attempted manslaughter after allegedly trying to drown a man while he was in the water near the Florida campus of the University of Florida.

He was released from the county jail on Thursday after posting $100,000 bail.
