"Police: Poison gas from rotting squid guts kills 3

Yomiuri Shimbun

Three of four crew members found dead Sunday aboard a South Korean vessel at a fishing port in Oda, Shimane Prefecture, may have died from lack of oxygen due to a gas caused after the guts of squid in the hold of the ship rotted, police and Japan Coast Guard officials said Tuesday.

According to their investigation, the surviving crew member was Kim Jung Back, captain of the vessel, the Dong Woo, which was used to transport the internal organs of squid to be processed into salted guts. The hold of the ship was divided into 19 sections, investigators said, adding that they found rotten squid guts in two sections of the hold where the three men and Kim were found.

The police strongly suspect the two sections had become filled with poisonous gas generated by the rotten internal organs. "
