A swept out to sea in the NE coast of Taiwan
Here's a picture of the coastal area of the northeast corner of Taiwan, near the Stone Fish Harbor of the town of Ying-ge (鶯歌).
local news just reported that a group of 6 people were fishing there this morning. With growing wind and waves in time along with raising tides locally, the fishermen were stranded out there and one 60 year old man was swept into the ocean by a large wave and disappeared. Local police managed to rescue the stranded with speed boats and helicopters, along with Navy Coast Guards, but the one that was swept out to sea remained missing.
Hazards and tragedies have no discriminations on locations!
