 11 persons rescued and 2 missing from a cargo ship in danger in Dongshan sea area, Fujian Province


At 4:00 a.m. on the 21st, the East China Sea Rescue Bureau received rescue information and immediately assigned the rescue helicopter B-7346 of the Second East China Sea Rescue Flight Team and the professional rescue ship East China Sea Rescue 116 to rush to the distressed waters for rescue. At 6:57, the helicopter arrived at the scene, where the wind and waves were 5-6 meters high. After careful searching, five crew members were found floating on the sea in life jackets, one of them was physically exhausted and suffered from hypothermia. The lifeguard immediately launched into the water for rescue.

Because the five crew members were wearing life jackets and were already underwater, the overall weight was very large, the crew made unremitting efforts to successfully rescue five crew members in distress onto the helicopter, and emergency medical rescue measures were implemented on one crew member with hypothermia in the helicopter.

It is reported that 13 crew members in distress abandoned the ship around 3 a.m. Five of them were rescued by the East China Sea Rescue Bureau and six by passing ships. At the time of submission, two crew members were still missing. At present, on-site search and rescue is still in progress.
