On Thursday, U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) delivered a speech on the Senate floor on the capsizing of the Seacor Power.

In his speech, Cassidy recognized the six crew members that have been confirmed dead and the seven crew members who remain missing.

The Seacor Power liftboat capsized off the coast of Grand Isle on Tuesday, April 13, with 19 crew on board.

“Louisiana experienced a tragedy last Tuesday when a liftboat with a crew of 19 capsized off the coast of Grand Isle. We grieve with the families and we will always remember the lives of those we lost too soon,” said Cassidy.

Cassidy also offered prayers to those affected by the capsizing and discussed the efforts of the Coast Guard and good Samaritans who took part in the search and rescue efforts.
