SEATTLE — It wasn’t exactly the kind of fishing trip she was expecting. But after a harrowing ordeal at sea, Kate Suski is finally headed home to Seattle.
Suski escaped a sinking fishing boat off the coast of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean more than a week ago. Suski, her brother, and two other passengers swam through dangerous waters for 14 hours before making it to shore where they flagged a farmer to call for help. The four managed to survive the shark-infested waters, saying that at one point they had to fight off a 200-pound marlin.
“It’s hard to pinpoint one particularly trying time,” Kate said when she returned. “We’re just happy to be here and be back and visit with family.”
