An overloaded ferry in Thailand's central Samut Prakan Province sank in the gulf of Thailand late Sunday, killing three persons, local radio reported.

The long boat, whose rated load was only 15 persons, carried 37persons while it crashed with an underwater telegraph pole near Samut Prakan Province, some 60 kilometers from Bangkok.

The ferry totally sank after the bump, the FM 100 Traffic Radio said.

A local police was quoted as saying that the rescuers have found all the three missing passengers soon after the accident, while all the other passengers were saved.

All the passengers, including Japanese, Indonesian, Bangladeshi and Thai nationals, were teachers and graduate students from the famous Chulalongkorn University. An Indonesian female student were among the three killed.
