Rescue teams saved one of the crew members of Geroy Arsenala, the Russian cargo vessel that cracked earlier today in Black Sea waters. The saved seaman is a Ukrainian citizen, Russia’s emergency ministry said.

The ship that suffered distress earlier today in the Black Sea cracked in two pieces.

Previously, the Russian authority said that the rest of the crew was still in the water. The rescuers set visual contact with another four men, but cannot take them aboard due to strong waves moving them away from the boat. The actual condition of the rest of the crew is currently unknown.
