MOSCOW (AP) — An oil drilling platform has capsized in the Sea of Okhotsk off Russia's east coast, leaving four people reportedly dead and 49 missing.
The Emergencies Ministry said in a statement Sunday that there were 67 people aboard the platform as it was being towed about 200 kilometers (120 miles) off the coast of Sakhalin Island in stormy conditions. It said 14 people had been rescued.
Russian news agencies later cited ministry officials as saying the bodies of four people had been found. Officials could not immediately be reached for comment by The Associated Press.
