    Colombian Tourist Boat Sinks, Killing Six

    It took less than five minutes to disappear. At least six people have died and 16 are missing after a tourist boat sank on a reservoir near Medellin, Colombia, where rescuers are still combing the waters in an ongoing search and rescue operation. An estimated 170 people had been on the four-deck El Almirante boat near the popular Andean resort town of Guatapé when it suddenly went under. Officials are unsure what caused the vessel to go down so quickly, but locals said the same boat has sunk twice before.
