“Gun Death” Fishing Boat

A big one too:

Fears were rising today for the crew of a South Korean trawler which sank in the Bering Sea, off the east coast of Russia.

More than 50 men were reported missing in appalling conditions with high seas and strong winds.

Seven people were rescued from the 1,753-tonne Oryong 501 – including a Russian inspector on board the ship when it got into difficulty.

That sucks, but it’s part of the job, and it isn’t “Gun Death” so why should anybody care?

    Back in the day, we lost many more than were saved… And those few owe their lives to the USCG. Sad story, but not unusual for that area of the world. The Bearing Sea is NOT for sissies…
