A fishing boat capsized on Tuesday in waters off the country's south coast, leaving six dead and five injured, the Coast Guard said.

The 59-ton boat flipped over a rope between a tugboat and a barge at 4:32 p.m. in waters some 1.5 kilometers off the island of Geoje, some 470 km south of Seoul.

Out of 11 crew members aboard, three were rescued initially. One of the rescued died after being in critical condition. 

The rest were searched later, with five found dead, officials said. 

The investigation into the cause of the accident is underway, the Coast Guard said. (From news reports)
