MOSCOW, December 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Thirteen sailors of the Success Cambodia-flagged fishing boat in distress in the Sea of Japan (the East Sea) have been rescued, the Russian Transport Ministry told Itar-Tass.
All of them are citizens of Russia.
“The Vanino seaport received the May Day signal from the Success fishing boat in the Tatar Strait, northern part of the Sea of Japan (the East Sea) at 6:30 a.m. The ship was immobile and the pump was inefficient. The Chelyabinsk vessel was sent to its rescue,” the ministry said.
The Chelyabinsk took aboard 13 crewmembers of the ship in distress and went to a sheltered bay off Cape Peschany, about 50 miles away from Vanino. The tilted Success stays on the wreck scene.
None of the fishermen or crewmembers of the Chelyabinsk is hurt, the Far Eastern Shipping Company told Itar-Tass. When the gale in the Tatar Strait dies down, the Chelyabinsk will depart to Vanino. The Vanino port captain said that the wind in the strait neared 25-30 meters per second. The weather deteriorated under the influence of a cyclone, which emerged in the Sea of Japan (the East Sea) two days ago and reached southern Sakhalin by now.
