Rescuers were searching on Monday for 11 crew members of a cargo vessel
that sank after colliding with a container ship in waters near Hong
Kong.
One crew member, a 47-year-old man, has been rescued by a fishing vessel
following the accident, which occurred before dawn Monday in waters
south of the southern Chinese city, Marine Department spokeswoman Heidi
Cheng said.
The 97-meter (320-foot) Zhong Xin 2, carrying cement and registered in
mainland China, is suspected to have sunk after colliding with the
300-meter (985-foot) MOL Motivator, she said.
One helicopter and eight marine police and fire department boats from
Hong Kong are helping with the search and rescue effort, which is being
coordinated by a command center in Guangdong province on the mainland.
Hong Kong’s waterways are frequently crowded with sampans, commuter
ferries and cruise ships as well as massive container vessels serving
the city’s busy port. The city suffered its biggest maritime tragedy in
decades two years ago when a ferry collided with a smaller boat, leaving
39 dead and 100 injured.
