Death toll in Bangladesh ferry disaster rises to 22 with many missing

孟加拉国参与沉船救援的政府部门官员16日说,15日发生的沉船事故造成的死亡人数增至22人。

当地时间15日傍晚,孟加拉国一艘载有200余人的渡船因暴风雨在距首都达卡27公里的梅克纳河沉没。

目前,参与救援的力量包括当地的消防、海军和海岸警卫队。目前沉船位置大概在水下15米的地方,参与救援的船只仍需要数小时将船拉到岸边。

参与救援的人员表示,目前还不能确定沉船上的失踪人数,因为沉船事故发生后许多人自行游到岸边。

孟加拉国全国约有250条大小河流,船运是主要交通方式之一。由于不少客轮年久失修,加上超载严重,沉船事故时有发生。

Bangladesh rescuers have dragged out 10 more bodies, raising the death toll to 22 in the ferry accident on river Meghna, after it sank in storm on Thursday afternoon.

Sources from police, fire service and navy said Friday morning that divers of fire service, navy and coast guards dragged the bodies from inside the sunken ferry, as the ferry is being dragged on the bank by the salvage ship.

The ferry Mirage-4 carrying over 200 passengers departed from the capital for southern Shariatpur district and sank in storm on Thursday, Fire Service officer Nurul Islam Dulal, who is at the accident site, told Xinhua via phone on Friday morning.

The salvage ship Prottoy is trying to drag the sunken ferry to the bank, which stays under 50 feet down into the river Meghna, one of the mighty rivers of Bangladesh.

Relatives of the victims are seen cry for their dead relatives on the bank.

The fire service officer said the ferry Mirage-4 has experienced accidents twice in the past.

Inland Water Transport Authority officials say around 1,000 people die in ferry accidents in the country on average every year and the number of missing is far more.(新华网)
