VLADIVOSTOK, January 30 (Itar-Tass) – Five ships and a Be-200 amphibious plane of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) continue the search for the missing seamen from the fishing ship that capsized amid a storm off Russia’s Primorye on Sunday.
A Mi-8 helicopter of VladAVia airlines will also join the search operation on Wednesday en route between its destination points of Samarga-Svetlaya-Ternei-Vladivostok. Two more EMERCOM helicopters and planes of the Russian Pacific Fleet are ready to join the search, the press service of EMERCOM’s Far Eastern centre reports on Wednesday.
The search area shifts further south, within 30 miles from the shipwreck scene. The crab boat capsized and is still afloat drifting with its bottom up. All ships in the Sea of Japan have received a warning that the Shans-101 fishing boat presents a danger for navigation.
The crew of the crab boat consisted of 30 people. Fifteen seamen were rescued during the search operation. One of them, the captain of the ship, has died, and the other seamen remain missing.
The captain of the Atlas rescue ship coordinates the search operation. Divers on board the Atlas must examine the overturned ship, but weather conditions prevent them from doing that at the moment. All in all 387 people assisted by 42 units of hardware participate in the operation on Wednesday. Northwest winds reach the speed of up to ten meters per second, the temperature is between minus seven and minus 15 degrees, and the waves are up to 1.5 meters high.
No fuel leakage from the ship has been registered, reports from the site say.
