At Least 54 Sailors Die as Russian Trawler Sinks off Kamchatka Peninsula

MOSCOW – At least 54 sailors died after their trawler sank in the Pacific Ocean off of the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia’s east on Wednesday night, reported the region’s emergency services.

“According to the latest data, 54 bodies have been recovered and 63 crew members have been rescued,” the Russian media quoted the sources as saying.

There were 78 Russians and other 54 internationals from countries such as Myanmar, Ukraine, Vanuatu and Latvia working on the ship that sank for unknown reasons in Sea of Okhotsk, 330 kilometers (205 miles) off the coast of Kamchatka.
