Cargo ship carrying 4000 cars capsizes off US

Recommended Posts

SEOUL: A South Korean cargo vessel carrying Hyundai and Kia cars bound for the Middle East listed heavily on Sunday off the coast of the southern US state of Georgia, an official of operator Hyundai Glovis said.

The US Coast Guard said a pilot and 23 crew were aboard the Golden Ray when it overturned in Saint Simons Sound and 20 people had been rescued.

Rescue teams were searching for four crew members believed to be inside the engine room of the vessel, the company and South Korea's foreign ministry said.

Hope all ok 😞

Judging from the photo, if the capsized vessel stays afloat, very good chance the people will still be alive.

But not sure if the pressure of the trapped air in the vessel would be too high for people to survive, I suppose it is manageable.
