Three Ilonggos were among the crewmembers of an ill-fated cargo ship which sank in Vietnam waters over the weekend, a Vietnam news agency reported. The Department of Foreign Affairs said the families of the crew members of sunken cargo ship Bulk Jupiter are being informed of the plight of their loved ones. Bulk Jupiter, which was manned by 19 Filipino crewmembers, sank off the coast of Vung Tau City in Vietnam last January 2. Vietnam’s Tuoi Tre News website (tuoitrenews.vn) reported on Sunday that the ship’s chief cook, Angelito C. Rojas, was rescued. According to the maritime crew list posted in the same website, Rojas is from Tigbauan, Iloilo.
