Searching for the crew of the sunken Thai warship:

The local military is trying to locate the remaining 31 sailors trapped inside the corvette-type ship HTMS Sukhothai that sank tonight (between Sunday and Monday) in the Gulf of Thailand.

At least 75 crew members have been rescued from the water so far.

The rescue forces are using helicopters and ships in the operation.

Rescue efforts are underway and have been going on for over 12 hours.

The Royal Thai Navy's corvette HTMS Sukhothai sank today in the gulf of Thailand in the middle of the stormy sea.

The ship said to lose both engines and water rushed in, causing the ship to lose stability and sink.

No one died in this accident.

The weather conditions make the search very difficult.

"The waves are still high and we can't look for them from the horizontal line. We have to fly the helicopters and look for them from a bird's eye view instead," explained Thai Navy spokesman Admiral Pokrong Montatpalin this morning.

"Our top priority now is to save all the sailors. We plan to save the ship later."

One of the crew members who were rescued said that he swam in the water for about three hours until the rescue forces arrived at the scene and explained that the cause of the accident was the strong waves that reached a height of three meters which led to the sinking of the ship.
