Map locating Russia's Kamchatka peninsula where a trawler sank Wednesday leaving at least 54 people deadAt least 54 sailors have died and 15 others are still missing after a trawler with 132 people on board sank Thursday in the Sea of Okhotsk in Russia's Far East, Russian media said. The Dalniy Vostok sank at around 6:30 am (2030 GMT Wednesday) off the coast of Kamchatka, 250 kilometres (155 miles) south of Magadan, the main town in the sparsely populated region in Russia's Far East. Nationals of Ukraine, Lithuania and Vanuatu were also on board the trawler, a 5,700-ton, 104-metre long factory ship designed for carrying several dozen sailors on fishing trips over several months. "According to initial information, 40 injured people will be evacuated to a hospital by helicopter," Magadan district press office said in a statement, adding that they had not taken part in the rescue operations due to the remoteness of the trawler at the time of its sinking.

Wounded workers arrive at a hospital after being evacuated from the Abkatun A-Permanente platform on the Gulf of Mexico's Campeche Sound on April 1, 2015Eight firefighting vessels with water cannon battled a blaze on a Mexican offshore oil platform for hours, an inferno that killed four workers and forced 300 to be evacuated. An explosion and fire erupted at 3:40 am the Abkatun A-Permanente platform operated by the Pemex state-run firm on the Gulf of Mexico's Campeche Sound, the ASEA energy safety agency said. Some 16 hours later, Pemex reported that the fire was finally extinguished off the coast of eastern Campeche state. Some 300 workers were taken to other platforms in the area, while the injured were transported to Pemex's general hospital in Ciudad de Carmen.
