The number of deaths is yet to be confirmed but different sources say  9 people have been found dead and 15 people are still missing at this moment. In the video you can see the 4 floor boat rocking back and forth as people try to get to the top floor. “Those on the first and second floors sank immediately,” survivor Lorena Salazar told local media. “All we could do was scream and call for help….it was completely chaotic.”
