At night Oct 30 general cargo vessel HOANG PHUC 18 capsized some 7 nm off Ho Chi Minh’s Can Gio district coast, Vietnam. Vessel remained afloat bottom up, out of 18 crew 12 were rescued, 1 found dead and 5 remain missing. SAR under way, divers are trying to spot and rescue people trapped inside, at least 2 are said to be alive. Vessel capsized in rough weather after excavators and trucks on upper deck shifted. No data found on 2000-ton vessel, maybe there’s misunderstanding with regards to ship’s number and number of crew. There are several numbered general cargo vessels under the names either Hoang Phuc, or Phuc Hoang.
