Japan Coast Guard suspends search for crew of missing cargo ship after finding three sailors
The Gulf Livestock 1, with 43 crew members and almost 6,000 cows onboard, went missing near southern Japan on Wednesday. The area in the East China Sea was being battered by the powerful typhoon, equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane with winds of at least 130 mph, at the time the ship went missing.
Three sailors have been rescued, and one of them has died, according to the Coast Guard.
Rescue operations were suspended Saturday noon local time, and a second storm -- powerful Typhoon Haishun -- is expected to slam the area on Sunday. Restarting the mission will depend on weather conditions.
On Friday a man was found floating in a life raft two kilometers from Kodakara Island -- only the third person to be found.
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 a hospital, and is alive, walking and talking, it added.
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.
Another 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 a hospital, according to a Coast Guard statement sent to CNN, but a later statement from the Coast Guard said that he had died.
