Bangkok Some 18 passengers and three crew were left stranded in open waters and forced to stay afloat for an hour after their tour boat caught fire and sank off the coast of Thailand, police said on Tuesday. The 21 passengers on board were later rescued by a fishing boat and brought to the southern town of Satun. The fire broke out as the crew filled oxygen tanks for the dive. (DPA)
