Family safe after yacht hits Galapagos reef

A Toronto couple and their relatives were among 16 Canadians and eight Ecuadorian crewmembers rescued from a yacht that ran aground Wednesday evening in the Galapagos Islands.

Three generations of a Toronto family, ranging in age from less than 10 to 70, were aboard the yacht when it hit a reef near a remote island.

Each passenger aboard the eight-cabin yacht paid $3,750 for the eight-day trip.
