4 missing on capsized cargo ship 1


Four crew members remain unaccounted for after a cargo ship began "listing heavily" off the coast of Georgia Sunday morning, according to a news release from the US Coast Guard.

The vessel — the 656-foot Golden Ray — was reported to be leaning on its left side, or port side, around 2 a.m. in St. Simons Sound, Capt. John Reed, commander of the Coast Guard Sector Charleston, said at a news conference.

Crews from the Coast Guard and other agencies responded and rescued 20 of the 24 crew members before a fire on board forced them to stop, he said. The Coast Guard said the ship is carrying vehicles.

    OK Guys… every single comment that I have read is negative. Don’t you realize that we have to help to unite the country, not add to division? Think of the ripple effect, and let’s be nice to each other. I pray for our government every day, I am not Republican or Democrat, I vote for the person. It sounds simple, but kindness, respect ,honor, and unity begins with us. God bless whoever reads this, as well as our country..

      Dude McDudeson I agree, it can be very divisive. I didn’t mean it in a political way , It’s definitely a personal opinion, but kindness can be spread in every direction. Also, integrity and honesty. Thanks!

      Project Jack I think it’s true on both sides, CNN versus Fox.. both are slanted…It’s one of the things I really hate. I always watch both networks, along with BBC, PBS, Along with documentaries. I tried to urge each station to report the news, rather than slanted news. Thanks for your comment.

      Elkslayer what a great comment. In reality, I’m 70 years old, and totally disabled. Have to be in bed all the time. I reach out through social media, phone or with the grandkids in my bed. Also with my doctors, people in the waiting room, etc…It’s amazing how little kindness it takes, even in an elevator, to put a smile on someone’s face. Your comment really showed that you care, and think…
      When I was younger, I lived in the inner city, also in an apartment. My goal was always to meet and greet those around me. I’m so happy you left this comment.

  2. I will be praying that missing crew members will be rescued with minor injuries.

  3. Cars cheap!..slight water damage!😂

    Trust me I’m not you know nothing like these guys that are doing this great job. I’m just giving my speculation as I hear the story and it most likely is wrong but anyway

  5. Even though one of missing people is our university student.. he is on board for practical training. I hope he is safely rescued…

  6. It’s apparent the vessel is in very shallow water. May have run aground.

      This is a GAY HATE CRIME… the HOMOPHOBIC CREW Scuttled the Ship to target the GAYS onboard. 4 are already DEAD… who knows how high the DEATH TOLL will rise. ?

    • @John Doe Why don’t you slip into something comfortable. Like a coma. You degenerate POS.

    I pray for those waiting to be rescued as well as their families. Praying for the bravery and safety of those providing rescue and recovery operations.

    Best of luck to everyone involved

  9. The weight shifted ! if it’s loaded with unsecured vehicles(meaning someone screwed up by not balancing the cargo) there can’t be too many possibilities why a new boat would flip over like that

      Rick Cruz that’s not a new RoRo, just repurposed, and if in engine failure, pumps and so on wouldn’t function ballast to properly keep balanced… also many factors involved. Overall, it’s heartbreaking.

  10. Have safety restrictions and regulations been removed ? This second time in several weeks something like this have taken place .

  11. The ship would appear to be incorrectly ballasted and she was top heavy. The hull shows she didn’t hit anything and she is resting on mud flats. The master turned the boat too tightly after leaving port and she rolled over because of the error in ballasting. The ship is fully inundated and she is probably going to have to be hauled over onto her keel before re-floating. I expect it’s going to be about 2 months to get her out and depending on the type of cars on board this is going to be a huge insurance claim.

  12. Giant air bags might be used to displace water & provide bouyency for righting the capsized ship. And of course pumping out water from holds that are flooded, but are still watertight. If there is damage to the hull, then that might have to be repaired first, before any salvage operations can begin.
    Removing cargo might also be employed, but first of all the initial reason for capsizing must be determined. Was there a tear in the hull, shifted cargo, shallow water (grounding) etc.?

  13. Praying for the families of the missing people

  14. Whats up with all these ships capsizing its horrible 🙁

  15. *_(Peppy): DO A BARREL ROLL!_*

    It looks band new. There is no algae or ocean barnacles at all. It’s like they for got to put the ballast in the ship.

    There are some very experienced salve companies in the US who do some awesome work. It would have been a good idea to get someone with salvage experience instead of these talking heads.
