Sources of Maritime Rescue have explained to Europa Press that two fishermen who sailed in the area have collaborated in the device and have managed to rescue six other crew members.
For its part, the mayor of Sanxenxo, Telmo Martín, has reported that the three deceased and the missing in the sinking of the fishing "Sin Querer Dos" in Finisterre are Cambados (Pontevedra).
In statements to the media, Telmo Martín has reported that "Sin Querer Dos" came from fishing for four days in the Bay of Biscay and that after stopping in La Coruña, where he was fishing jack mackerel, he was heading to Portonovo, where the wrecked ship had its base port.
The Sanxenxo regidor lamented the "very sad news" that this shipwreck represents and has been skeptical about the possibilities of finding alive the crew member who is still missing.
"We are all very dismayed and affected," said Telmo Martín, who has called attention to the fact that the crew of the wrecked ship "came to spend Christmas with their families."
Asked about the causes of the shipwreck, he said that several hypotheses are being considered, like a blow of the sea, but he has preferred not to venture and wait for the official information.
The Vice President of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda, has informed the Galician Government, will arrive at half past six to Porto do Son, in La Coruña, municipality to which they lead two of the fatalities.
