Shipping agents said Wednesday that a Russian freighter could not have caused a South Pacific boating accident that killed a Santa Clarita man and his two children because it was 115 miles from the scene. The freighter Kapitan Byankin was among at least five vessels that reportedly sailed through stormy seas 35 miles off the northern tip of New Zealand, where the accident happened just before dawn Friday.

Assigning blame for a high-seas disaster that killed three members of a Santa Clarita family, maritime investigators said Tuesday that a South Korean freighter rammed and sank the family's yacht in the South Pacific last year. South Korean police said the log carrier Pan Grace hit the 47-foot Melinda Lee on Nov. 24 off New Zealand.

New Zealand officials and the U.S. Coast Guard want to inspect a cargo ship they suspect collided with a yacht, which sank, drowning a Santa Clarita man and his two small children. The lone survivor of the tragedy, Judith Ann Sleavin, made an impassioned plea Friday for the ship's captain and crew to cooperate with the investigation and, if responsible, accept blame for the loss of her family who had been on a world cruise.

A 27,000-ton cargo ship arrived today in port at Inchon, South Korea, to face an international investigation in the ramming and sinking of a yacht off the New Zealand coast in which three Southern Californians were killed. The Pan Grace, owned by a South Korean shipping line, apparently remains the sole ship not yet investigated in connection with the Nov. 24 sinking of the 47-foot yacht Melinda Lee.
