Freighter sank near Macao, 11 crew rescued
Freighter Hai Bang Da loaded with 2650 tons of construction waste sank in the evening June 25 in Zhuhai waters, north of Macao. 11 crew was rescued by a passing merchant vessel. It is understood, that the vessel capsized due to cargo shift, weather was fresh with up to 2 meters sea. There are too many vessels under the name Hai Bang Da plus number, to figure out the one in question. It’s a cargo vessel of around 3,000 tons deadweight, Chinese-flagged.
