The "CSAV Tyndall" collided with a Korean 17-ton fishing vessel in waters about 26 kilometers northwest of the small islet of Biyang near the southern resort island, north of Jeju, on Dec 8, 2016 at 12:30 p.m. The fishing vessel sank, five crew members were rescued, two were recovered dead and two remained missing. The body of the 59 year old captain was recovered on Dec 9 off the country's southwest coast, raising the death toll to two. The body was found floating some 16 kilometers off the country's resort island of Jeju, about 12 km away from where the incident took place. He was transferred to a hospital on the island. The body of another crew member was found late on Dec 8. The "CSAV Tyndall" was moving dead slow near the collision site. She was en route from Busan to Qingdao. The master was meanwhile arrested, while the vessel resumed her sailing and anchored off Qingdao on Dec 12.Upload News
