No SOS signal

“According to preliminary data, the trawler sank very quickly, the crew did not have time to send a request for rescue,” a representative of the regional department of the Russian Emergencies Ministry told Interfax.

The causes of the disaster are not yet known. It is reported that the ship sank due to water entering the engine room. The Kamchatka Department of the Emergencies Ministry believes that the cause of the incident could be difficult ice conditions.

As a source in the operational headquarters for the elimination of the consequences of the shipwreck told Interfax, "the main version of what happened is the excessive impact of ice on the ship's hull, which led to deformation with subsequent partial destruction of the hull."

Interfax interlocutor also did not rule out that the crew could violate safety regulations, exceeding the allowable storage of cargo or incorrectly placing it in the holds of the vessel.

According to another version, the vessel overturned at the moment of lifting to the upper deck of a multi-tonne seine with fish.

The Far Eastern Transport Investigation Department opened a criminal case under the article “violation of traffic safety rules and operation of sea transport, which inadvertently resulted in the death of two or more persons”.

The investigation into the circumstances of the crash of the trawler was taken over by the leadership of the Investigative Committee of Russia, a spokesman for the department Vladimir Markin said. According to him, the most probable version of the flooding of a trawler in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk is a collision with an obstacle.
