THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, FEB 5 : A cargo vessel laden with foodgrains and bound for Maldives has reportedly developed leak roughly 13 km away from the Vizhinjam coast here.
Water began seeping in at 2.45 am, according to early reports reaching here. Further details of the identity and ownership of the freightliner are awaited.
Responding to distress signal, the Coast Guard and Marine Police from Vizhinjam have reached the vessel, an official spokesman said.
He quoted the Marine Police as saying that they are confident of saving all 11 sailors on board.
But most of them are reluctant to leave the ship mid sea and would rather explore the option of salvaging it and guiding it back to coast, the spokesman said.
