South Korean Sailor Missing In East China Sea

A South Korean Sailor on a Panamanian-registered liquefied natural gas tanker went missing Sunday morning after falling into the East China Sea, prompting the Japan Coast Guard to dispatch an airplane and boat to rescue him, Coast Guard officials said. The 47-year-old Sailor is part of the crew of the 103,764-ton Hyundai Greenpia. The incident occurred around 8 a.m. when the tanker was located about 560 kilometers west-southwest of Kagoshima Prefecture, the officials said.
