Fisherman still lost

Authorities and fishermen in Koh Kong province’s Khemarak Phoumin town are still searching for Lim Samnang, a fisherman missing from one of two boats that sunk in nearby waters on Tuesday night. The boats reportedly sunk after encountering a severe storm while returning from Sihanoukville.  Five fishermen survived the wrecks and were rescued on Wednesday. “Now our local authorities, fishermen and the victim’s family are trying to search for the missing fisherman, but we don’t expect him to be alive,” Pong Kheng, chief of Koh Kong province’s Dang Tong commune, said yesterday.
