Prayers for four

Priya Chand
Thursday, December 06, 2012

SEMISI Nacagilevu has been praying for his four co-workers who are still missing at sea after the Yavu Youth vessel they were on sunk in waters off Wakaya Island on Saturday.

Mr Nacagilevu was one of the three lucky survivors from the vessel and speaking from his hospital bed in Levuka on Tuesday he said he was very hopeful that the four men would be found alive and well.

Tragically though, it seems his prayers will not be answered.

Yesterday the Fiji Navy decided to call off the search for the four Public Workers Department workers after spending almost four days scouring the waters off Levuka and Wakaya for a sign of the men.

However none was forthcoming.

Speaking to this newspaper yesterday, Navy Commander John Fox confirmed that the search was being called off.
