    56 Dead After Russian Trawler Sinks

    At least 56 people are dead after a Russian trawler sank in the Sea of Okhotsk in Russia's far east Wednesday.

    Emergency officials said 63 of 132 of the crew members on aboard the ship were rescued after the Dalniy Vostok sank in icy waters near Russia's Kamchatka peninsula. Thirteen people are still missing.

    Officials say the ship sank in a mere 15 minutes, with the water temperature near the freezing mark.

    The most seriously injured were being airlifted to the city of Magadan, some 250 kilometers to the north.

    At least 14 local fishing vessels are helping with the search and rescue mission.

    The trawler was carrying 78 Russians and 54 foreign nationals from Myanmar, Ukraine, Lithuania and Vanuatu.

    The cause of the accident is still not known, although investigators say the ship may have hit an object in the water. A local official told Reuters news agency that the crew may have violated safety rules by overloading it, affecting its balance.

    Is this a rebooted start of For Your Eyes Only?

    Anyway, wait a few days for the US submarine limping into port with bent periscopes and the "presumed to have hit an iceberg" story.
