Original title: the number of victims in the wreck of Phuket has risen to 45, and 2 people are still missing.

On the morning of July 11th, the Phuket government held a Buddhist ceremony for the victims of the wreck at the Dragon Boat terminal. At a subsequent press conference, Puji Fu Yin Norapa introduced the latest search and rescue progress. Before the deadline, the number of victims of the accident had risen to 45, and 2 people were still missing, including a victim of the bottom of the wreck.

Thailand Navy said that for the victims of the bottom of the ship, the search and rescue team has identified a specific salvage program this morning and is now being salvaged. As for another person who has not yet determined the specific position, the navy has united the army, coordinated the coastal offices and departments, and inferred the possible position of the lost personnel in accordance with the ocean currents and wind direction, and increased the search and rescue efforts.

The Thailand Maritime Safety Administration said it is now stepping up to confirm whether there is another missing person at the bottom of the wreck. As the sinking ship is situated at the location of 45 meters above sea level, salvage work must take into account the weather and other conditions. Salvage is very difficult. At present, the Marine Bureau has produced 400 tons of crane to assist in salvage, and has promised to do its best to keep the integrity of the wreck so that future evidence collection and the cause of the accident will be checked.

Norapa said that in the afternoon of the 5 day of the crash, search and rescue work has been launched. He thanked all the forces that helped in the search and rescue work, including the professional search and rescue teams and volunteers from the Chinese side. "The Thai Party expressed his sincere thanks to all the Chinese search and rescue teams, volunteers and staff members involved in the search and rescue work." Nora has promised to continue its search and rescue work and will work together with the Chinese in the search and rescue process to work together until all the missing persons are salvaged.
