STOCKHOLM – One crew member of a Danish ship which capsized after being struck by a larger British freighter in the Baltic Sea off the south coast of Sweden has been found dead, authorities said on Monday.

The Swedish Maritime Administration said in a statement the crew member had been found after a search of the vessel.

Police said the person was dead.

The other member of the Danish crew is still missing.

The Danish barge collided with a British vessel in a busy maritime route off Sweden during the night.
