In a 9:10AM Coast Guard news conference they reported that so far the only known survivors are five crew members. They also report that search and rescue efforts are ongoing.

The Coast Guard also reports that Conception has sunk in 64 feet of water about 20 yards from shore with the bow protruding above the surface.

The five crew members were rescued by a private boat named the Grape Escape. One was removed in a stretcher with a injured leg. One had a hurt foot.
