MUMBAI: Twelve people had a miraculous escape after an overcrowded fishing boat capsized in a creek at Satpati village in Palghar on Thursday morning.

After the boat capsized, a couple of passengers helped the others reach the shore safely. Ajay Sindkar of the Satpati police station said the boat that was normally used to ferry passengers was not available due to repairs. Instead, a fishing boat was being used to transport locals.

Around 7.30am, the boat left Satpati for Murbhe with 12 people on board. Sources said the vessel was meant for only five persons. As the boat came close to a trawler, the passengers panicked and started moving around dangerously; the boat started swaying and then capsized.

Two passengers, Haresh Paghdare (35) and Kanti Patil (20), managed to stay afloat and helped rescue the others. Vanita Chaudhary (42) fell unconscious and was taken to the Satpati public hospital. The police said action would be taken against the owner of the fishing boat.
