MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. An orange object taken from air for a life boat from the sunken Dalny Vostok trawler has turned out to be a cargo pallet, a spokesman for the Far Eastern regional centre of the Russian emergencies ministry said on Sunday.
"The Mlechny Put ship combed the area. The object taken from air for a life boat turned out to be a cargo pallet. No survivors, no dead bodies were found," the spokesman said.
Earlier on Sunday, a Be-200 plane of the Russian emergencies ministry surveyed an area of 6,750 square kilometres of the Sea of Okhotsk. The search operation also involved about 200 fishing boats. In all, the operation involves more than 2,000 people and 118 vessels and aircraft.
An area of more than 21,000 square kilometres have been searched.
The Dalniy Vostok freezer trawler sank in the Sea of Okhotsk 330 kilometers west of Krutogorovsky settlement in Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka territory and 250 kilometers south of the city of Magadan in the small hours on April 2. The trawler, owned by Magellan LLC, was built in 1989 and its home port was Nevelsk. A total of 132 people were reportedly onboard the ship, including foreigners. As many as 56 people have died and another 63 have been saved. Another 13 people are still missing.
