Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Sep 22: Due to strong wind and heavy rain, three boats, two near Malpe and one at Karwar, met with accidents. A total of 19 fishermen from these boats were rescued.

A trawler belonging to Rama Kunder that had been anchored at Malpe port was washed away after its rope snapped because of the force of water. The boat had five fishermen. Because of a technical problem, the boat engine could not be started. The boat floated towards St Mary's Island where it dashed against the rock. Water started to gush into the boat. The locals then rushed in other boats and rescued all the five fishermen. The boat which was completely damaged after hitting the rocks, drowned.

Another boat owned by Leelavathi Salian that had left Malpe port on September 19 was returning to its base on Sunday when its steering broke near St Mary's Island. It had six fishermen, who were rescued by the local fishermen. The boat could not be brought to the shore because of the huge waves and was abandoned.

A deep-sea fishing boat from Malpe sank near Karwar port. All the eight fishermen inside the boat were rescued by people in another boat
