Two people are dead and a boy is missing after a ferry collided with a water taxi off the Dutch coast near the Wadden Sea island of Terschelling in the north of the country.
Several people were injured in the collision, emergency services said.
A 12-year-old boy was still missing, a coastguard spokesman said in a radio report on Friday. Several rescue teams were in action, he said.
The accident happened in the morning a few hundred metres off the coast of Terschelling.
According to the coastguard, seven people were on board the water taxi, which collided with the Tiger fast ferry with about 27 people on board, after which it is said to have capsized.
The ferry was on its way to Harlingen on the mainland and was reportedly damaged, but it was able to continue its journey. According to the emergency services, no one on board the ferry was injured.
