Six people are dead after an overcrowded ferry sank near the
tourist resort of Pattaya in Thailand.
The ferry sank after running into engine trouble late last
night, BBC reports.
Three Thais, two Russians and a Chinese died, and a
9-year-old Russian boy is critically ill in hospital.
There were reportedly 200 passengers on board the ferry that
left Lan island for the 30-minute trip to Pattaya.
