VLADIVOSTOK, January 29 (Itar-Tass) – Four Russian seamen from the Shans-101 fishing boat that sank on Sunday in the Sea of Japan have been taken to the settlement of Plastun in Russia’s Far Eastern Primorsky Territory and hospitalized, local medics told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
They were saved by the Talan fishing boat on January 28 after having spent two days in a life raft. Their captain died on Tuesday onboard the Talan. Medics say two of the four men have their toes frostbitten. Two others have no visible injuries. Medics however are afraid all the four might develop pneumonia. They have been put on medication.
The body of the captain has been taken to Plastun too.
The Shans-101 has a crew of 30 men, citizen of Russia and Indonesia. Fifteen were saved after the shipwreck. One of them died. Ten crewmembers, including six Russians and four Indonesians, are undergoing treatment at a hospital in the town of Kholmsk. Four Russians are receiving treatment in the settlement of Plastun.
Investigators have established that after the shipwreck eighteen crewmembers took a life raft. Eight of them died of hypothermia. The survivors immersed their bodies into the sea. If it is so, the fate of seven crewmembers is still unknown.
