Rescuers found a survivor and recovered five bodies from a Thai warship that sank in the Gulf of Thailand last Sunday, Thai Navy officials said.

The department said that they no longer hoped to find anyone alive. Two dozen people are still missing, the Thai Navy said. Officials also acknowledged that there were not enough life jackets for everyone on board.

Earlier, the Commander of the Navy, Admiral Cherngchai Chomcherngpat, at a press conference in Bangkok, said that two people were rescued, but later he denied this information, specifying that one survivor and five bodies were found.

According to the Chief of Staff of the Thai Navy, Admiral Chonlatis Nawanugrah, the survivors and the bodies of the victims, as well as some of the wreckage of the ship, were found about 60 kilometers from the place where the ship sank. He also said that the name of the survivor Chananyu was Kansriya and that he was found on the surface of the sea. Kansria picked up a passing freighter.

Recall that the corvette HTMS Sukhothai, which has been in the service of the Thai Navy for 35 years, sank on December 18 in the evening. There were 105 people on board the vessel, 76 of whom were rescued, and more than 20, as already noted, are considered missing.

    Again, there were not enough life jackets for everyone. It's not even funny anymore.

      The saddest thing is that we are talking about a warship.

    The exemplary and well-equipped army, as it is characterized in this region, did not have enough life jackets for the crew of the warship. And earlier, instead of evacuating the crew, helicopters and ships that approached the place of emergency were engaged in supplying pumps and trying to pump out water.

    On December 18, 2022, while on patrol in the Gulf of Thailand, strong winds and strong waves caused sea water to enter the ship; this caused a power outage and subsequent loss of control of the machines and steering mechanisms. Sukhothai continued to take on water until it eventually sank overnight.

    Lost his course, turned to the wave and flooded. Corvette 840 tons is too small, apparently, for those conditions. Yes, and there are decent weapons on it, from anti-ship missiles to medium-range air defense systems, anti-submarine torpedoes with all related equipment. He is not in the photo for the article, if anything.

      Yes, there were mb vests, just when capsizing, some compartment was blocked where they were actually stored, for example, a storm corridor
