General cargo vessel Yuan Da 668, anchored on Zhanjiang road, southernmost China’s peninsula, South China Sea, was caught in typhoon, dragged anchor, ran aground and sank, with superstructure remaining above the water. Seven crew jumped into the water in an attempt to reach the shore. Six safely reached the shore, while one died. On a photo, presumably, Yuan Da 668.
