Spanish trawler capsized, sank in the Atlantic, 1 dead 1 missing

Spanish trawler DORNEDA capsized and sank on Jul 11 in vicinity 45 08S 060 11W, South Atlantic, some 200 nm off Argentina coast. 25 crew were found later in life rafts and rescue or life boat, and rescued by Argentine fishing boat, 1 reported dead and 1 missing. Most of the crew are Spanish but there are also Moroccans, Peruvians and Indonesians amongst them.
Trawler reportedly capsized during trawl upheaving, not unheard of accident which may befall trawlers. Some three years ago, Russian trawler capsized and sank in Okhotsk sea in similar circumstances. Trawl went abeam of ship’s hull when rudder was hard a board, plus heavy seas, also contributing to the loss of stability.
