The captain of the boat Dava that had sunken off the eastern coast of Kamchatka was arrested
The captain of the boat Dava that had sunken off the eastern coast of Kamchatka was arrested. The court satisfied a request made by the prosecutor’s office that insisted on arrest, a source in the prosecutor’s office told journalists on Wednesday. The regional transport prosecutor’s office is going to bring charges against him in the case opened over the tragedy that claimed five lives. The boat Dava that is owned by the businessman and is registered as a pleasure boat sank about 160 kilometers south of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and five miles off the coast. Twenty people were aboard the ship. Nine people were rescued, another five people were found dead. The fate of another six passengers of the pleasure boat is still unclear, but there are practically no chances to find them alive, specialists said. The captain noted that the pleasure boat wit the displacement of 102 tonnes has sunken for ten minutes after a quick flooding of the hold and afterbody. The SOS signal was not given, as the marker buoy failed. According to experts, the overloading and the incorrect fastening of cargo aboard the vessel caused the sinking of the pleasure boat. It was found out that the boat shipped 40 tonnes of cargo instead of 25 permissible tonnes. Meanwhile, there were more passengers aboard the vessel than it is permitted. The boat could carry not more than 12 people.
