Seamen rescued from drifting Russian vessel in Turkey’s Black Sea

Turkish Coast Guard teams rescued six crew members on a Russian cargo ship on Nov. 21 after the vessel issued an emergency call off the Black Sea coast.

A helicopter crew plucked the six seamen from the vessel Nefterodoz 29, adrift by strong winds one mile off the coast of Bartın province, said a security official.

The vessel was carrying iron and had set sail from Russia’s Rostov Port.
