Huge waves caused by poor weather conditions capsized a boat carrying Islamic boarding school students off the coast of East Java province on Saturday, March 10, leaving at least one person dead and four others missing.

The waves hit the boat when it was passing waters of Pulau Sepekan of Sumenep in Madura district, leading to the tragedy, said Johar Satrio, a rescuer at search and rescue office in the province. “Search for missing is underway now, involving rescuers from our office and volunteers,” he said.

The boat was heading to Tanjung Geok village where the students were to attend a sermon, said Satrio.

About 12 students who survived the incident have been transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment.
