KALININGRAD, November 15 (Itar-Tass) — Four sailors from the crew of a fishing trawler have been rescued in the Baltic Sea on Thursday.
Chief of the Western branch of State Rescue Service for Special-Purpose Underwater Works (GOSAKVASPAS) of the Ministry for Emergency Situations Nikolai Sheremet said that according to preliminary reports, the steering equipment of the fishing trawler went out of order last night, and a threat arose that the ship might be forced aground in the area of Obzorny Cape.
The General Ulybin rescue motor ship sent to the emergency area failed to take the sailors from board the ship in distress because it was pitch dark and the sea was too rough. As soon as the day broke another rescue motor ship managed to remove the four sailors from the ship in distress.
The rescued sailors were given the necessary medical assistance and brought to the sea port of Baltiysk on Russia's westernmost coast, where the GOSAKVASPAS western department is based.
