A man was found dead after a boat went down in Gloppen, the county of Sogn og Fjordane on Saturday evening. Three people survived the shipwreck.

The accident report, which occurred in the Gloppenfjord, arrived just before 19 o’clock on Saturday night, and large resources, including three helicopters and a number of boats, participated in the exploration.

“It’s a bit unclear what kind of boat it was, but apparently an older fishing boat that went down quite quickly. Three people managed to land ashore, a person was missing, and there were many boats and resources in turn all night to find him. We received good help, says rescue leader Ben Vikøren at the Norwegian National Rescue Center, Southern Norway, to NTB.

Among other things, the rescue boat Halfdan Grieg was in charge of the action, according to the rescue company . The ferry on the Anda-Lote line was temporarily removed from traffic to assist, according to the West Road Traffic Center , but the connection was in normal operation again from around 22.45 on Saturday.

The three who managed to land ashore were transported to the hospital in Nordfjordeid and termed as offshore, according to the West police district. In the 1.30s the missing man was located in the fjord using an underwater craft.

“It has taken a while to get him up and shipped to land. We finished the search action right now, says Vikøren at NTB at 4.20.

Porters are notified. The cause of the loss is unknown.
