On that fateful day the bodies of five of the students were recovered from the rough sea water, two however were not recovered and are presumed dead.

On radio on Thursday PM Gonsalves said while the parents have opted for a more solemn remembrance, three years on, he highlighted the importance of standing in solidarity with the family and people of Fancy.
