In Canada at least 7 people died from a ship that sunk in the seas off Newfoundland.

A Spanish boat sank and there were 7 confirmed dead and at least 14 missing.  Some were able to be saved by a lifeboat.  The fishing boat was called Villa de Pitanxo and it was 164 feet long. 

A Spanish fishing boat sank early Tuesday in rough seas off Newfoundland in eastern Canada, killing at least seven people, an official in Spain said. Three crew members were saved from a lifeboat, and a maritime search was launched for the 14 other crew members still missing in heavy seas.The 50-meter (164-feet) long fishing boat named Villa de Pitanxo, which operates out of northwest Spain’s Galicia region, sank in the dark (around 0600 GMT, 1 a.m. EST), Spain’s regional representative, Maica Larriba, told Spanish public radio,” says AP News.

Villa de Pitanxo had 24 crew members of different nationalities.  A rescue center operated by Canada’s air force and coast guard sent a helicopter to look for the ship but it has not been found yet.  

“The 24-member crew of the sunken vessel included 16 Spaniards, five Peruvians and three workers from Ghana, Spain’s maritime rescue service said.  A rescue center in Halifax, Nova Scotia, operated by Canada’s air force and coast guard, dispatched a helicopter, a Hercules-type aircraft and a rescue vessel to the area, which is 450 kilometers (280 miles) off the island of Newfoundland.  “The fishing vessel has not been found,” the rescue center wrote on Twitter. “The search continues for the remaining crew and we hold out hope that we will find them.”,” says AP News.
