Coast guard rescue nine crewmen from sinking ship

Mumbai: The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) rescued nine out of 30 crew members trapped aboard a sinking cargo ship, M.V. Rak Carrier, in the Arabian Sea Thursday morning, an official said.

Foreigners, including Indonesians and Jordanians, sent out a distress call around 8 a.m. to the Indian maritime authorities.

The ICG and other agencies concerned with maritime safety immediately dispatched helicopters and a smaller vessel to the sinking ship, anchored around 25 nautical miles off south Mumbai.

"We are hopeful that the remaining 21 shall also be rescued soon," an official ICG spokesman told IANS.

An ICG ship, Samudri Prahar, is on its way to help the crew.
