This handout picture released on August 7, 2013 by the Marine Nationale (French Navy) shows French navy helicopter fliying over fishing trawler, the "Zun Yang 26" which capsized 50 kilometres (30 miles) off the coast of Rapa island in French Polynesia.  Four Chinese sailors died. Rapa is one of the most isolated islands in the world. The exact cause of the accident is not known but the area suffered strong winds on Monday and Tuesday which ripped off roofs.
