A cargo ship sank off Turkey’s Black Sea Coast, killing six crew members including Captain, according to media reports.
A search and rescue mission was launched after the Turkish authorities received a distress signal from the Panama-flagged vessel, Volgo Balt 214, off the Black Sea coastal province of Samsun.
The crew included 11 Ukrainians and two Azerbaijan nationals.
According to one of the survivors, the hull of the ship split into two after getting hit by a powerful wave, which eventually sank the ship.
Volgo Balt 214 was carrying coal and was heading to Samsun from the Russian port of Azov.
