TOKYO: Japan’s coast guard rescued a second survivor yesterday, hours after finding an unconscious crew member who later died, in waters where a ship carrying cows from
New Zealand is believed to have sunk in the path of Typhoon Maysak in the East China Sea, officials said.
Rescuers have been searching for the Gulf Livestock 1 ship and its missing crew since it sent a distress signal on Wednesday. The 11 947-ton ship, its 43 crew and 5 800 cows left New Zealand in mid-August heading to Tangshan on China’s eastern coast.
