Yesterday (23rd), a search operation is underway for the second day to find the three missing crews of the 339-ton large fishing vessel 127 Ocean, which sank off the coast of Geoje-si, Gyeongsangnam-do at around 3:50 pm.

There were 9 Koreans and 1 Indonesian aboard the ship. To date, 7 have been rescued, but the remaining 3 are missing.

The coast guard expanded the search range to a radius of 20 km from the accident point and mobilized 21 patrol boats to search overnight, but the search was difficult due to high waves and strong winds.

The Coast Guard has been searching the scene of the accident with seven new aircraft starting this morning.
