Philippine Coast Guard Rescues Crew from Sinking Ferry

Philippine Coast Guard Rescues Crew from Sinking Ferry

The Philippine Coast Guard rescued the crew members of a sinking passenger-cargo vessel MV Super Shuttle Ferry 11 in Balbagon, Wednesday, November 26.

The rescued seafarers were onboard MV Super Shuttle Ferry 11 and were siphoning seawater from Ferry 11’s grounded sister ship, MV Super Shuttle Ferry 15 when the incident occurred.

The personnel of Coast Guard Sub Station (CGSS) Camiguin immediately ordered the crew to suspend its siphoning operations when they noticed that MV Super Shuttle Ferry 11 was already listing on its portside.

The ship officers and crew abandoned ship five minutes later. The Special Operations Unit Northern Mindanao (SOU-NM) personnel immediately conducted rescue operation on scene and successfully rescued all officers and crew of MV SSF-11.

Personnel from MEPU-NM and SOU-NM laid a spill containment boom around the distressed vessel to prevent any oil spills.

The Coast Guard directed the Asian Marine Transport Corporation and owner representative to hire a registered salvor company to salvage the submerged MV Super Shuttle Ferry-11 and grounded MV Super Shuttle Ferry 15 as soon as possible. The master of the vessel was also advised to submit a marine protest regarding the said incident.
