General cargo SUNSHINE is sunk
« on: April 25, 2007, 05:01:04 PM »
The Panamanian flagged general cargo vessel SUNSHINE is sunk, she was on route from Trapani in Sicily
to Port Said in Egypt with a cargo of marble. The master reported that the ship sank at 5pm in high seas on Sunday.
The ship rolled 90 degrees and within 10 minutes it had sunk with all crew surviving. The master of the Turkish ship
said they ran out of provisions yesterday.
The warship HMS MONTROSE yesterday rescued 11 Turkish seamen who were found drifting helplessly in two small boats
after their ship sank beneath them two days ago.
