Thailand, the 3rd of December 2009 [Pattaya Daily News]: The eleven fishermen are part of an all Thai crew of 24 on the fishing trawler “KM Antasena 820,” working for the “PT Pusaka Benjina Resources” company. The “KM Antasena 820″ was involved in a heavy storm in the Arafura Sea (between Australia and New Guinea), where it subsequently sank killing 7 of the crew. 6 crew members were pulled from the water by the sea rescue teams. Eleven men remained unaccounted for, with a search continuing for over 3 weeks.

Head of the Aru Islands Police Mr AKBP Solihin informed that residents living on the island close to where the boat had sank have already buried the bodies of the 7 dead men. It is believed that the main cause of the accident was the severe weather that hit the sea on the night of the tragedy, however; authorities remain suspicious that the boat may also have been overloaded as is often the case.

The ships captain Mr Somkit Korannesuk explained that the severe storm, with it’s strong winds and very substantial waves made the boat almost impossible to control. At the time of the storm the ships crew were attempting to pull in the nets that had been set in the water. Mr Korannesuk further stated that several waves crashed over the side of the boat causing it to capsize and sink.

A representative from the “PT Pusaka Benjina” company confirmed that all the crew members had been from Thailand, adding that the boat had not been overloaded as was suggested by various authorities.
