8 fishermen had a lucky escape after their trawler was capsized at Miramar during the wee hours of Friday. The trawler hit the sand bar while going to sea. The crew members raised an alarm and they were rescued by other trawlers.

The trawler name Ocean Star from Siridao ventured into the sea at 4.30 in the morning. The trawler Tandel did not judge level of water and hit the sand bar.

The wooden body of trawler developed a crack and water started gushing into the boat. Trawler ran aground and soon capsized.

Other trawlers were deployed to pull it out. But could not manage. Trawler owners have demanded that buoys be installed in the sea to guide because of the sand bar.
