Divers have found the remains of another missing ferry crew member in the sunken Racha 4 ferry, but were unable to recover the body.

 

Rear Admiral Nopparat Lumlert, deputy commander of the Second Fleet, said today that the divers found the female victim trapped inside the toilet.

 

He said that the steel toilet door is small and the victim, already in the state of decomposition, is large, rendering it impossible for divers to recover the body.

 

The search for the other two missing crew members was called off late today, due to poor underwater visibility and bad weather.

 

The latest victim has been identified as Mrs. Napatda Chanharn, 40, of Maha Sarakham province, who worked as a saleswoman on board the ferry.

 

The two others who remain missing are Thivakorn Watcharith, a crewman, and Chaicharn Laosap, a trailer truck driver.

 

The ferry capsized in rough seas, about five nautical miles from its departure point on Samui Island last Saturday night, with sixteen people on board, including three trailer truck drivers and one pickup truck driver.  The trucks on the ferry were carrying about 90 tonnes of compressed garbage, which was to be delivered to the mainland in Surat Thani province for disposal.

Not to be an <deleted>, but how did you expect someone to have survived underwater in a sunken ferry for four days?

'Crew member found trapped' suggests that the person was alive
