PERU: A major search and rescue is underway in Peru after 3 bodies were found after a ship collided with a fishing vessel.

It is unknown how many people were on board Senor de la Misericordia, as the fishing vessel left the port of Paita without authorisation.

Following the incident the German container ship, Jamila, remained at the crash site to aid the search and rescue. She has now sailed in to the port of Paita for a full investigation.

This video was filmed moments after the crash:

Yesterday ARX Maritime reported that the German ship was on route from Callao to Paita, Peru, but details of the crew safety were unclear at that time.

The search continues.
