NTSB: Communications outage a factor in lift boat disaster


              FILE - Rescue boats are seen next to the capsized lift boat Seacor Power seven miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico, April 18, 2021. An outage involving a Coast Guard marine warning system and “data gaps” in existing radar systems were contributing factors in last year’s deadly capsizing of an oil industry offshore “lift boat” off of Louisiana’s coast, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a report issued Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022.
