Members of the Coast Guard on Saturday were called to rescue three people after a boat sank in the Gulf of Paria.

The crew aboard the "First Lady", a party boat, struck an unknown object while out on the water and began to sink, prompting them to call the Coast Guard at around 7pm on Saturday.

The Coast Guard found the captain of the boat and two crew members aboard a dinghy, which was next to the submerged vessel. They took the men back to Staubles Bay at 10pm.

The boat did not have an ongoing event at the time. The Management of Cruise Events Ltd., the boat's owners, issued a statement,

They said due to unforeseen traumatic circumstances that occurred on Saturday, all cruises on board the First-Lady Cruise Ship have been indefinitely cancelled. They stated that all contracted charters for cruises over the next weeks and months will be Fully Refunded.

They thanked the public for their understanding and apologized for any inconveniences caused.
