A damaged wooden boat, believed to have orginiated from North Korea, is found near Goseong, Gangwon Province, on Sept. 25, 2020.
A wooden boat believed to be from North Korea was discovered on South Korea's northeastern coast Friday.
According to military and police officials, the small boat was found around 6:45 a.m. near Sampo Beach in Goseong, a Gangwon Province county, some 470 kilometers east of Seoul.
The waterlogged ship was found damaged with no one on board.
The officials speculate the ship may have drifted into South Korean waters due to recent typhoons and downpours in the North, ruling out the possibility of its involvement in any suspected espionage.
