Three Crew Members Missing after Cargo Ship Sinks off Crete

The Hellenic (Greek) Coast Guard is searching for three missing crew members of the Togo-flagged cargo ship, Ag Marina that sank early on Thursday about 30 nautical miles off the western coast of the island of Crete.

Thankfully the bulk carrier Princess Maria (IMO 8212087) managed to save four out of seven crew members, all Russian nationals, from the stricken vessel before it went down. Still missing are the captain, electrician and master of the vessel.

According to the Coast Guard, the ship was en route from Montenegro to Odessa, loaded with six trucks and probably containers. Actively engaged in the rescue operation are four cargo ships, one Hellenic Coast Guard helicopter and one patrol vessel.
