Missing Crew Rescued; 1 Still Aboard Cargo Ship

Four crew members missing after cargo ship capsizes Four crew members are missing from a cargo ship that’s listing off the coast of Georgia

A video released by the Coast Guard shows the final crew member to be rescued - shirtless, looking dazed in a crowd of orange-vested rescue workers.

Four South Korean crew members of a massive cargo ship were rescued yesterday after a hole was cut into the steel hull of the capsized vessel, the US Coast Guard said.

"Their condition is relatively good for having spent 34 or 35 hours in the conditions they were in", Reed said.

The South Korean sailors emerged Monday from a hole drilled through the steel-plated hull of the Golden Ray, which flipped onto its side along the Georgia coast. And a language barrier made it tough for the preliminary rescue crew to speak with the trapped crew members, Heflin instructed AP.

"I believe that even the US Coast Guard didn't suppose (the rescue operations) would make progress this fast".

The local coastguard says it will now focus on environmental protection and removing the capsized vessel.

"As smoke and flames began to appear our crews, along with the Glynn County heavy rescue team, assessed that the situation was too risky to further go inside the vessel to attempt to locate the four individuals who remain missing at this time", Reed said. It was unclear how many vehicles were being shipped. It wasn't immediately clear where the third and fourth crew members were being treated.

Heflin says "the early indication is they are on board and OK".

The National Transportation Safety Board said two of its investigators have been assigned to review the circumstances that led to the ship overturning. At first, Reed said, rescuers were unsure if noise they were hearing was vehicles crashing around.

Rescuers used a helicopter to land on the side of the Golden Ray and rappelled down the hull. Two were able to walk, Capt Reed said, but he did not comment on the third's condition.

Responders eventually made an opening large enough to help the men climb out.

The fourth rescue was a greater challenge.

Communications between both sides were continuing, officials said.

The Vessel Finder website said the ship had recently called at the port of Brunswick and was headed to Baltimore.

The ship had 10 South Korean and 13 Filipino crew members and an American pilot, The Associated Press reported, citing South Korea's foreign ministry. It's owned by Hyundai Glovis, according to Reuters and the roughly 4,000 cars on the cargo ship are Hyundai and Kia vehicles that were slated for import.

Position records for the Golden Ray show the ship arrived in port in Brunswick Saturday evening after making the short sail from a prior stop in Jacksonville, Florida. It left the dock shortly after midnight and was underway only 23 minutes before it stopped in the mouth of the harbor and capsized, according to satellite data recorded by Marine Traffic.

Six Koreans, 13 Filipinos and a USA citizen were rescued before the Coast Guard made contact with a remaining four in the engine room Monday.
