Japan Coast Guard finds third sailor as search for missing ship with 43 sailors and 5,800 cows aboard continues
The man, a 30-year-old Filipino named Jay-Nel Rosals was found on Friday afternoon two kilometers (1.2 miles) from Kodakara Island, the Coast Guard said. He was taken to hospital, and is alive, walking and talking, it added.
He is only the third person to be found after the Gulf Livestock 1 transmitted a distress signal early Wednesday when it was about 185 kilometers (115 miles) west of Amami Oshima island.
A lone Filipino sailor was rescued late Wednesday, after more than half a day in the water. He was in good condition, the Coast Guard said.
A second crew member was found floating unconscious on Friday morning near Japan's Amami Oshima island, about midway between Okinawa and Kyushu, Japan's southernmost main island. He was taken to hospital, according to a Coast Guard statement sent to CNN, but a later statement from the Coast Guard said that he had died.
