Dutchman missing after Indonesia ferry sinks, five Dutch rescued
One Dutchman and one Italian woman are still missing after Sunday’s ferry disaster in Indonesia, according to the Telegraaf.
Five Dutch holidaymakers are among the 23 people rescued after a ferry carrying 20 tourists and five crew between the Indonesian islands Lombok and Komodo hit a reef and sank.
The other tourists came from Britain, Germany, Spain and New Zealand.
Some of the survivors spent 40 hours in a tiny dinghy before being picked up by rescuers.
One of the Dutch survivors, a Utrecht medical student named as Els, survived by swimming to an island and spending the night there with two others, the Telegraaf says.
