A South Korean cargo vessel carrying about 4,000 vehicles bound for the Middle East was listing heavily off the coast of Georgia, an official of operator Hyundai Glovis said, and media reports show the vessel had capsized.
The U.S. Coast Guard said a pilot and 23 crew were aboard the Golden Ray when it overturned in St. Simons Sound and 20 people were rescued before a fire forced responders to halt extractions. The remaining four were later rescued once it was safe for crews to approach the ship.
".@USCG and rescue crews have extracted the final #GoldenRay crew member safely. All crew members are accounted for. Operations will now shift fully to environmental protection, removing the vessel and resuming commerce. #HappeningNow #BreakingNews #Breaking" the Coast Guard tweeted Monday afternoon.
