UPDATE: U.S. rescuers continue to save crew of stricken South Korean ship [VIDEO]
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by REUTERS.COM:
(Reuters) – Rescue workers on Monday freed three of four missing crew members from a South Korean cargo vessel that flipped on its side off the coast of Georgia, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
Salvage crews gradually drilled an opening in the ship’s hull, first to deliver food and water to the survivors, then to extract them, USCG Captain John Reed told a livestreamed news conference.
The article goes on to state the following:
The fourth missing crew member was trapped behind a glass panel in the ship’s engineering control room, and though rescuers could see him, they had yet to get him out, he said.
“He’s at greatest risk … right now,” said Reed. “We are trusting that the ventilation in there remains intact.”
The crew member left behind has not had food or water for approximately 36 hours.
Rescue workers on the hull of the ship rose were exposed to 120-degree Fahrenheit heat. Reed says it may be hotter inside the ship.
