Eight people are dead after a ferry capsized and sank after a collision with a fishing boat near India’s port city of Kochi. The ferry was transporting about 30 passengers from Vypin, a Kochi island to Fort Kochi. The Coast Guard, Navy and Marine police were dispatched for the rescue operation.
The survivors are being treated at a nearby hospital, but at least three of the rescued passengers are in serious condition.
The status of fishing vessel and its operators is unknown.
