Moscow: Six people were found dead and 15 were rescued from a Russian fishing vessel that capsized in the Sea of Japan Sunday, officials said Monday.
The Chance-101 fishing boat had 30 crew members - 19 Russians and 11 Indonesians - when it capsized in Japanese waters 50 km east of Svetlaya village in Russia`s Primorye Territory.
"As of now, 21 crew members were found (15 alive and six dead), while nine crew members are still missing," a statement from the Transportation Prosecutor`s Office said.
Two life rafts were discovered near the capsized ship. The first raft carried six Russians and four Indonesians. Five more people were later rescued from the second raft.
The search operation for the missing people continues and involves several rescue ships as well as an amphibious Beriev Be-200 aircraft and a Mil Mi-8 helicopter.
