Authorities say to watch out for sunken boat near Deer Island

Boaters out on the Mississippi Sound are asked to watch out for a sunken boat in the water.

The Biloxi Fire Department and U.S. Coast Guard urge boaters to exercise caution near the 50 foot shrimping vessel called the ‘Cajun Maid’ which is resting west of Deer Island and south of the Biloxi Lighthouse.

The Cajun Maid was reported as having trouble around 5 a.m. Saturday morning and the Coast Guard rescued three people from the vessel.

Now, the Coast Guard will work to remove the vessel from the site.
