South Korea's coast guard rescued four crew members of a Russian cargo ship and found another dead off the eastern Korean coast Tuesday, a day after the vessel called for help due to bad weather, an official said. The coast guard was still searching for 13 missing crew members as well as their ship, the 2,448-ton Sinegurye, said an official from the Donghae Provincial Coast Guard Headquarters. The Sinegurye sent a mayday call around noon Monday and then lost contact after encountering high waves and strong winds 73 nautical miles offshore, the official said. The Russian cargo ship had been traveling from a port in Russia's far east and was bound for a Chinese port, the official said.
