A sailor died in the accident and eight were rescued.
A man has died as a result of the accident that a ship has suffered this morning in the Castro Baroña area, in Porto do Son (A Coruña). According to the first data, the Divina del Mar boat, based in Portosín, landed on the rocks and the deceased launched himself into the sea, but crashed into the stones. The body has already been located by Civil Protection and was transferred to Portosín in the Helimer 402 Marine Rescue helicopter.
Sources from the fishermen’s association of Portosín explain to Cope Santiago that the deceased is José Manuel Castelo, 48, a 48-year-old man, a native of Noia who had been working at sea for a lifetime.
Three other crew members were able to land on their own and five more were rescued by other ships that were in the area. All are under observation at the Hospital del Barbanza, in Ribeira.
A MOTOR FAILURE
From the Fishermen’s Association of Portosín, they believe that the boat may have suffered a motor failure that left it without a government “and went to the stones.”
Salvamento Marítimo works since five o’clock this morning on that part of the coast of O Porto do Son, located at the mouth of the estuary of Muros and Noia, in the southwestern area of the province of A Coruña.
“The fishing boat varied at dawn in the vicinity of Castro de Baroña,” Salvamento explained this morning through his Twitter account.
ALERTS AT THE SEA
Galicia has activated alerts at sea for waves that can reach five meters high, but the conditions were good this morning as explained in the area.
