Search resumes for missing fishermen

(from SABC news, January 06, 2006)

Police divers will resume the search today for two missing seamen after a fishing trawler tragedy near Dassen Island on the Cape West Coast earleir this week.

Billy Jones, a police spokesperson, says sea conditions are favourable for a search again today. Patrols are monitoring beaches in the vicinity of Yzerfontein.

Two crew members who survived the accident on Tuesday, Jimmy Warner and Crosby Dana, are recovering with their families at Hout Bay.

Herman Peterson, the skipper, died when the ship, the Jidy Aym, apparently capsized when it was hit by a freak wave.
