The Coast Guard rescued all four trapped crew members from a capsized cargo shipMonday , finding them alive more than a day after the vessel overturned while leaving a port on the Georgia coast. Captain John Reed said responders had plucked three South Korean crew members from a room in the hull near the ship’s propeller and and later removed the last one, who was trapped behind glass in the ship’s engineering compartment.

At least two of the men who were extracted from a hole drilled in the hull of the Golden Ray were able to walk with assistance down to a waiting boat. All three were being examined by medical personnel.

The article goes on to state the following:

The men were in relatively good condition for having spent over 30 hours trapped in the ship, Reed told reporters during a press conference. “They were subject to some pretty tough conditions over the last day and a half,” he said.

“[United States Coast Guard(USCG)] and rescue crews have extracted the final crew member safely,” USCG tweeted. “All crew members are accounted for. Operations will now shift fully to environmental protection, removing the vessel and resuming commerce.”
