"The boat under our group command has fulfilled its mission by showing a great example of courage in these weather conditions. It has performed search and rescue activities by sailing under these difficult conditions, where nobody can sail. The ship is a cargo ship with the flag of Palau. He took shelter in Bartın harbor due to bad weather conditions. As soon as we heard about this, we mobilized all the possibilities from the land and sea. The biggest obstacle for us is a blizzard and a wave in the sea exceeding the length of the breakwater. Despite this wave and bad weather conditions, the Coast Guard Command showed great devotion. We took 6 crew members alive to this boat. Unfortunately, two of the other 6 crew members were seen at sea, but the boat did not dock. The other four crew members are also reported motionless in the rocky area, according to eyewitnesses. We are trying to reach them as well. It is impossible to reach by road. Our diver team has a special undersea rescue team. He's trying to get here by diving. Our assessment is 6 right, 6 death. But the studies are not completed yet. Since it has not been concluded, we will not be able to make a definite judgment on this issue. 6 of them were rescued. Coast Guard Command helicopter departed from Samsun. It will continue with transfer from Sinop. If he can fly over the sea, he has various rescue methods. They will be tried. TCG Fatih Ship affiliated to the Naval Forces Command is on the way. If he can make a contribution, it will continue. This is our last situation. Sea conditions are very difficult. The length of the wave was higher than that of that boat. We were really in contact with the coast guard command and our Minister of Interior. The ship is not moving. Sheltered. I cannot give very technical information about maritime terms and concepts about this ship, but it sinks where it is due to bad weather conditions. Off the ink. We have ended the search and rescue efforts at sea. There is no possibility of any watercraft to work. I just visited the staff on the boat. We have a staff member who suffers from a finger injury or injury due to hypothermia. "
