BARCELONA, Spain OP)-The
bodies of 20 more American sail-
ors and Marines were pulled
from the murky waters of Bar-
celona harbor yesterday. This
raised the known death toll to 44
in the capsizing of a U.S. Navy
launch filled with servicemen;
returning from weekend leave.
Six men were missing and
U.S. Navy officials said Spanish
and U.S. Navy divers would
continue to search for them un-
til all hope is lost. Because of
the cold and darkness of the
water, the search was suspend-
ed at sunset, to resume this
morning.
THE 56-FOOT launch collided
with- a 380-ton Spanish freighter
and overturned in the early
morning darkness Monday.
The launch was ferrying more
than 100 servicemen back to
their U.S. 6th Fleet ships, the
helicopter carrier Guam and the
amphibious transport ship Tren-
ton, which were anchored in the
outer harbor. It had just pulled
out and was rounding a pier
when the collision occurred at
about 2:20 a.m.I
Officials said 30 other sailors
and Marines aboard the launch
remained hospitalized here,
more than a half-dozen in ser-
ious condition. There were no
casualties aboard the freighter.
IDENTIFICATION of the vic-
tims has been withheld by the
Navy pending notification of1
next of kin.
The U.S. Navy and the Span-
ish MarineCommand were in-
vestigating the tragedy.
Twenty-four bodies were re-
covered Monday, and in the first
hours after the accident Navy
officials said some of the men
missing from shipboard roll calls
might be on leave. But the re-
covery of more bodies yesterday
dimmed those hopes.

consular officials stood at dock-
side yesterday as the bodies
were towed ashore by divers.
Most of the dead were in ci-
vilian clothes, returning in the
launch " after a night in Barce-
Iona.
Survivors said the freighter
suddenly loomed up as the
launch rounded the corner. Sev-
eral of the sailors and Marines
were trapped under the over-
turned launch for two hours,
breathing in a 11/2-foot air space,
until Spanish tugboats righted
the craft.
"WE SAW a ship coming at us
suddenly and it kept coming,"
said Marine Cpl. Herb- Brax-
ton, 22, of Camden N.J. "People
started to yell, 'Damn it, watch
out!' but the ship kept coming.
"The bump didn't do much
damage but the ship just kept
on coming into us and that's
what turned us over."
Many of the men swam to
safety. Twelve' men were
trapped under the launch, but
there was an 18-inch air space
that enabled them to breathe.
They were rescued two hours
later when Spanish tugboats
righted the heavy steel craft.
"IT WAS a nightmare, but
there was not any real panic
except for a couple of guys,"
said Richard Felzien a 1st class
petty officer from 'Norfolk, Va.
Braxton said he couldn't swim
and was also one of those
trapped benea'h the boat.
Marine Cpl. Tyrone Crosby of
Cleveland, Ohio, said he had
hold of a buddy's arm "but he
just got away."
SENIOR Sixth -Fleet officers
yesterday met Spanish officials
aboard the Guam to begin an in-
quiry into the disaster.
A U.S. consular official today
praised the work of Spanish
rescue teams and said many of
the 84 survivors owed their lives
to, their swift action.
"They are doing an excellent
job. We are very grateful.
There's nothing more they could
possibly do." he said. One U.S.
official added, "I very much
fear the missing men will also
be found in the harbor but there
is still the hope they may turn
up safe.
"The missing crewmen may
have overstayed their shore
leave and not yet reported back
to ship," the official said.
