Fishing boat capsized off the eastern coast of Hokkaido 7:21:46 on September 21
It is difficult to find new clues in the 1st Regional Coast Guard Headquarters in the accident that a saury fishing boat with eight people overturned offshore off the eastern coast of Hokkaido, and it was difficult to find whereabouts. The search has been terminated.
On the 17th of this month, it was found that a saury fishing boat “65th Keiei Maru” belonging to the Daiki Fishery Coupling capsized over the sea off the east of Hokkaido.
Of the 8 people on board, Mr. Toshihiro Keigo (52) from Nemuro, the captain, was found in cardiopulmonary arrest and was transported to Hanasaki Port in Nemuro, but died at a hospital in Sapporo on the 21st. Confirmed.
According to the officials of the fishery cooperative, Keieimaru was on the way back to the port after fishing, but the saury loaded on the ship was very little, about 800 km.
In addition, because the fuel was running low, it seems that the ship was easily out of balance due to the effects of waves and wind.
In addition, the 1st Regional Coast Guard Headquarters continued to search for seven crew members whose whereabouts were unknown, but it was difficult to find new clues, and after obtaining the consent of the crew members' families. The search was terminated at sunset on the 21st.
The fishing boat is scheduled to sail to Hanasaki Port in the future, but the waves in the sea area are high and work has not yet started.
