Boat capsizes: Six fishermen saved
One fisherman who was seriously injured in the accident was rushed to hospital. The other five fishermen were also injured.
The boat, which was sailing deep into sea, had been capsized due to a sudden surge of waves about two kilometers off the coast of Boossa.
Another fishing vessel anchored at the fishing harbor and a navy boat had reached the capsized boat and rescued the fishermen who were clinging on to the boat.
The fellow fishermen with the assistance of the Navy towed the boat ashore.
The engine of the boat had been sunk in the sea.
A portion of the nets carried in the boat had also gone missing.
