At least seven people were dead and two missing on Sunday after a South Korean fishing boat collided with a refueling vessel and capsized, the coast guard said.

An official from the Korea Coast Guard said the number of deaths could grow as six among the 13 rescued were unconscious and in critical condition. He said 22 people were aboard the 9.8-ton fishing boat that capsized after colliding with the 336-ton refueling vessel in waters off the port city of Incheon. The official spoke on condition of anonymity, citing office rules.

The incident took place after the vessel departed from a port in Tanjung Pinang of Riau province, said Navy Spokesman Admiral Edi Sucipto, adding that bad weather was blamed for the disaster.

Navy command in western Indonesia undertook the evacuation just after the incident, Sucipto told Xinhua by phone.

Two passengers are in critical condition and have been shifted to the navy hospital in the province, Sucipto added.
