By Oct 6, the bodies of 12 Chinese have been pulled out of their capsized fishing vessel "Lurong Yuanyu 378" after it collided with the "Brightoi Lucky" 400 km north of the Oki Islands in the Sea of Japan. Divers of the Japanese Coastguard found all bodies of the missing 12 crew members inside the ship.
