Breaking news: 43 Crew, Nearly 6,000 Cows Missing After Ship Sinks In Storm-Tossed Seas Off Japan

A ship transporting more than 40 crew members and some 6,000 head of cattle has gone off the coast of Japan after capsizing in typhoon-lashed seas, according to a crew member who so far is the only known survivor.
The Gulf Livestock 1, en route from New Zealand to China, declared a distress call early Wednesday from a position west of Japan’s Amami Oshima island.
The mayday call, to which the Japanese coast guard answered, was sent as Typhoon Maysak was tracking through the region as a powerful Category 4 storm.

Maysak has since passed the area where the ship went missing, and the weather for the ongoing search is fine, Japanese coast guard regional spokesman Yuichiro Higashi said, according to The Associated Press.
