Ship with all-Filipino crew sinks off Vietnam
A crew member was rescued while two others were confirmed dead when a cargo ship with 19 all-Filipino crew capsized and sank off the Vietnamese coast early Friday morning. The incident was first reported by Gearbulk Holding Limited, a Bermuda-based company, which owns the ship, the Bulk Jupiter, on its website. The Vietnam Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Center (Vietnam MRCC), which is leading the search and rescue operation, said the rescued crew member was the ship’s chief cook, while one of the confirmed dead was the ship’s captain. Based on the list obtained by Tuoi Tre News, a Vietnamese website, the cook is identified as Angelito Rojas, while the ship’s captain is Ronel Andrin.
