High school teacher, daughter killed in California boat fire
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California school district says a high school physics teacher and his daughter were on board a dive boat that caught fire off the Southern California coast.
Fremont Unified School District spokesman Ken Blackstone said Tuesday that Scott Chan taught at American High in Fremont and was well-liked. The district originally said his wife was with him but later said they learned she was not on board.
Such heartbreak. A father & daughter from #LosAltos among those on board the Conception. 59 y/o Scott Chan was a teacher at American High School in #Fremont. He was with his 26 y/o daughter Kendra. Chan’s wife shared these pictures & said the two bonded over diving #ktvu 10/11p pic.twitter.com/fTYHGPpUJV— Azenith Smith (@AzenithKTVU) September 4, 2019
Authorities say 34 people are missing and presumed dead after the vessel sunk near Santa Cruz Island early Monday.
ABC affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix reports that an Arizona couple, Patricia Beitzinger and Neal Baltz, were also on board, according to Baltz's father.
