Eight people are dead and 13 missing after a boat capsized in Indonesia.

The boat, carrying 48 passengers, sank off Kalimantan Island.

Onlookers jumped into the water to try to rescue passengers.

The cause of the accident remains unclear.

Indonesia has a dire water safety record. On New Year's Day last year more than 20 people died when a boat caught fire near Jakarta.
