Kozhikode: A fishing boat capsized off Beypore Port on Friday morning amid strong winds. Five fishermen in the boat had a miraculous escape.

The boat ‘Jala Durga’ was struck by strong winds three nautical miles off the coast, causing the boat to lose control and capsize.

The occupants of the boat were rescued by another boat ‘Don’. The fishermen have been admitted to Kozhikode Beach Hospital.

The fishermen said though the sea looked calm from the shore, the deep sea is still rough even after the devastating Cyclone Ockhi.
