    The drowned body of another victim of the "Hayat N" ferry boat accident was found on Wednesday. The ferry sank within minutes of departing from Bandirma Port in the Marmara Sea on Sept.14.

    The remains of Necati Kalin, one of four missing people after the ferry accident, were found on the coast 500 meters from the port.


    The roll ferry boat "Hayat N" sank last month in the Marmara Sea immediately after departing from Bandirma Port, killing one truck driver.


    One person was killed, 101 people were rescued, and Kalin, Sevki Gonullu, Murat Karaca and Yahya Ozoglu were reported missing after the accident.


    The roll-on roll-off ferry, loaded with 73 trucks and two cars, went down in the Sea of Marmara shortly after leaving Bandirma Port. 


    The captain and staff captain were arrested by police after an investigation into the tragedy. Some survivors had blamed the crew, claiming the ferry was overloaded and already listing when it was leaving the port.
