LOOK: Cargo vessel capsizes off San Fernando, Cebu

A cargo vessel capsized off SEDC Port in San Fernando, Cebu at around 4:40 pm, Tuesday, June 25. All of its 12 crew were rescued by the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG)-Central Visayas.

Lt. Jr. Grade Michael John Encina, spokesman of the Philippine Coast Guard in Central Visayas (PCG-7) said MV Eva Mary Grace sank while it was operating its cranes to load bags of cement.

In the photos sent by PCG-7 to The Filipino Times, only the port side of the cargo vessel is visible on the surface of the water.

The vessel has a gross tonnage of 346.47.

With the fear of oil spill from the vessel, PCG-7 personnel under their Coast Guard Naga Station immediately placed oil spill booms.

The management of the cargo vessel had the crew, including crane operator Manuel Incarnacion—who sustained injuries, brought to the South General Hospital for treatment. Others were given medical attention by the responders.
