1 dead, 1 missing in Japan ship collision
The two Japanese-flagged fishing vessels, with a total of four people on board, collided with the 13,000-tonne Wan Hai five kilometers (three miles) west of Kansai airport in Osaka Bay shortly after dawn, a coastguard official said.
“All four people on the two fishing boats were thrown into the water following the collision, while there were no reports of injuries from the Taiwanese vessel,” a coastguard official said.
“Two of them were rescued safely, but one was confirmed dead,” the official said, adding that the coastguard was searching for the fourth person.
