Royal Thai Navy Lt Worawit Nopakao was has been out searching on the Tor 933 Navy boat said, “This morning we transported three crew members, Aomachu, 26; Jamayu, 30; Mackha, 34, and the body of the boat’s captain, 58-year-old Prayad Klaewglaharn, to Vachira Hospital. This was done as the search continued for the rest of the missing crew.

“Later this morning a fishing boat called in after seeing a man in the water,” he said.

The Bumrungthainawa 1 was also spotted by the same fishing boat south of Phuket this morning. We initially thought we would be able to recover the boat, however, we were unable to do so because it was already sinking when we arrived in the area,” he added.

The Bumrungthainawa 1 disappeared in rough weather about two nautical miles southwest of Phromthep Cape, Phuket’s southernmost point, at about 8pm with nine people,one Thai and eight Myanmar migrant workers, on board. (See story here.)
