20 sailors were rescued from the wreck. South Korean and New Zealand ships aided in the search for 17 still missing sailors.
The fishing boat, the In Sung, carried 42 sailors when it sank around 4:30 a.m. South Korean time about 1,000 miles north of a Unites States research center, which received no distress signal, the New York Times reported.
The five dead include two Indonesians, two South Koreans and one Vietnamese according to the Associated Press. The ship's crew included sailors from South Korea, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Russia.
