Keith Peck

Keith Peck: Mr Keith Peck, 31, is being lauded as a hero for trying to save the group by swimming for help. However, this comes as a cold comfort to his wife, who has spent an agonising past three days waiting for any news of the father of her seven-month-old son.

When The Straits Times (ST) caught up with her yesterday, she was waiting anxiously at the Tanjung Sedili jetty for the Malaysian rescue boats to return.

She could hardly contain her despair when it became apparent that for a second evening in a row, the boats had returned with no leads on her husband. Mrs Peck broke down and requested the waiting reporters not to disturb her.

Mr Peck - a stock trader and former assistant director at the Monetary Authority of Singapore - was set adrift in the South China Sea along with eight other men, when a 50m-high tanker bulldozed over their fishing boat. Mr Peck was swept away by a wave after he volunteered to swim to a passing trawler for help. By ASIAONE.COM
