A Thai fishing boat with 13 Myanmar fishermen onboard overturned in southern Thailand on Monday.
The fishing boat was registered under the Thai name Klanchai and had 13 Myanmar fishermen and two Thai nationals onboard when it overturned due to bad weather while the men were casting their fishing nets.
There was only one injury, a minor leg injury, and all were safely rescued by a Thai Coast Guard vessel. All crewmembers of the boat, both Myanmar and Thai, were being given timely treatment, according to the social networking site of Chonyuen Wisutthipat.
