The 34 foot long fishing vessel Marisol II collided during the night with the 15 meter long fishing vessel Tasa 147 off Pisco, Peru. The crewman at the wheel on the Tasa 147 had fallen asleep allowing the Tasa 147 to strike into the side of the Marisol II. The Marisol II crew was asleep and only 3 of the 15 crew were able to escape before the fishing vessel capsized. Authorities were later to recover 9 bodies from the Marisol II. The Peruian Navy and Coast Guard conducted a search and rescue mission to locate the missing 3 crew. Authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
