Crewmembers on board the cruise ship Pacific Princess saved three fishermen in the North Sea last Saturday. The three men were saved after having spent four hours in a life raft, after their vessel sunk 25 miles outside Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, the United Kingdom. Two people were later found deceased.

”The helicopter found the missing crewmembers dead bodies near the sunken fishing vessels wreck. All units have been called back”, says Aimee Rampton, Coastguard Operations Controller.

The United Kingdom’s coastguard and two rescue helicopters were part of the search along with rescue boats from Gorleston and rescue vessels from Caister and Lowestoft. Other ships in the area also participated in the search.

The vessel sank very fast and did not have time to send mayday. The two deceased members were found after a seven-hour search. All five members on board were foreign citizens. The official identification of the two deceased members has not taken place yet.
