(MENAFN - Arab News) The Coast Guard has found the bodies of three Asian workers at sea after they went missing when Saudi Aramco's offshore platform sank.
"They were all found. We found two of them late Friday and another one on Saturday morning," Eastern Province Coast Guard spokesman Col. Khaled Alarqubi said. The platform was being used to carry out maintenance work at an oil well in Safaniya, the world's largest offshore oilfield about 265 km north of Dhahran.
Saudi Aramco conveyed its condolences to the relatives of the three workers - two Indians and a Bangladshi.

Saudi Aramco's Rapid Response Team began searching for the three missing workers immediately after the maintenance platform sank.
The bodies have been handed to the authorities, a statement from Saudi Aramco said Saturday.
The moment the accident was reported, the Rapid Response Team launched a massive search operation with the help of helicopters, boats, specialized diving teams and evacuation teams. They retrieved the sinking vessel and minimized the casualties by rescuing 24 workers on board the platform. Some of them are being treated for their injuries.
