(Newser) – The last of six sailors missing from a Texas A&M University racing crew was found dead yesterday. The other five were rescued earlier in the day. The crewmembers were washed overboard when their boat took on water. "The flooding was so fast that the thing flipped over," said a Coast Guard spokesman. The team was heading to Mexico to take part in an annual sailing regatta.
