2 bodies recovered from sunken Korean ship at Bering Sea

On Monday, December 1st, 62 fishermen went missing after a Korean ship sank in the Bering Sea. So far eight bodies have been found (seven members rescued, one body discovered), though reports have arisen that two more bodies have been recovered from the rough waters.

Yonhap News Agency had reported that rescuers had found two more bodies recently, though 52 crew members have yet to be found. The ship had sunk off the eastern coast of Russia while fishing for pollock during the winter season, mainly due to ship maintenance problems under the harsh conditions of the ocean.

However, both the Russian and the South Korean governments will cooperate in rescuing the remaining crew members, most of which are believed to be dead, unfortunately.
