All crew members have been rescued after being trapped for at least a day at a yearlong freight boat that chased and captured fire Georgia’s coast throughout the weekend, the U. S. Coast Guard said Monday day.
Following the early chaos before sunrise Sunday, the Coast Guard was able to save 20 of those 24 people onboard the Golden Ray, a 656-foot boat that has been leaving the Port of Brunswick at St. Simons Sound using 4,000 vehicles when it recorded to a side and tipped over.
But the fire board, in addition to the instability of this Golden Ray’s cargo, made conditions too risky for saving missions.
“Operations will now shift fully to ecological security, taking away the boat and restarting trade,” the Coast Guard’s Seventh District tweeted afterwards announcing that remainder of the ship’s south-korean crew proved to be still safe.
The Coast Guard said Monday afternoon that your final crewmember was stuck behind glass within a engineering control room although that three more people were rescued.
Coast Guard Sector Charleston’s Capt. John Reed reported the 3 crew members extracted were receiving health care and at”relatively good” shape. They spent roughly 35 hours trapped involving temperatures that Reed said were”a lot sexier” compared to 120-plus degrees teams experienced out the boat, which was smoking and’d visible flames since rescuers arrived. Two could actually creep on a boat from this boat, Reed said.
Authorities left the rescue later hearing”tapbacks” from the trapped crew throughout the nighttime — signs of life that gave officials new motivation and helped him to pinpoint the team’s location on the huge boat, based on Reed.
Complicating matters has been the absence of power to the boat and its own compilation of compartments and watertight doors, Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Luke Clayton told CNN. And a language barrier made it problematic for the rescue team to communicate with the trapped crew members, Heflin told AP. But Reed said Monday afternoon that a engineer has been able to speak using them.
Teams were able to pass food and water into the three and a two-by-three-feet hold in three-inch increments now rescued, in accordance with the Coast Guard.
Two of those crew members are in stable condition at Southeast Georgia Health System at Brunswick, hospital spokeswoman Jenni Morris told CNN.
The 20 people initially evacuated from the boat — 1-9 crew members and a U. S. harbor pilot were raised from the tilting ship from aircraft and lowered into boats using fire pits, officials told CNN.
The National Transportation Safety Board said a few of its own investigators have been assigned to review the situation that led to the ship.
