Police say four crew members of a Russian ship anchored off Borneo island are dead and three more are seriously ill after drinking homemade Indonesian alcohol.

Central Kalimantan police spokesman Edi Ciptianto said Friday that authorities are searching for a local man they believe sold liquor mixed with a homemade brew.

Three men were found dead on the ship, the Captain Kurbatskiy, on Thursday.

Four others suffered from breathing problems, dizziness and vomiting after drinking the liquor and were rushed to a hospital. One, a woman, died shortly after arriving at the hospital.
