A landing craft vessel capsized in the Strait of Hormuz, resulting in seven people going missing. The vessel capsized 25 miles southeast of Iran’s Lark Island in the Strait of Hormuz.
According to Xinhua efforts are ongoing to save the seven people.
After receiving the message, a lifeguard vessel was dispatched to the area and necessary coordination were made with other Iranian maritime units as well as the passing vessels in the Strait of Hormuz.
Nevertheless, because of unfavorable weather conditions and darkness, the operation started from December 26, and the search and rescue operators located the watercraft capsized on the southeast of Lark Island.
The search and rescue team is now trying to find the missing people by mobilizing all the facilities and forces, as well as informing the passing vessels and the search and rescue centers of Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan
