On Sakhalin, the crew of a dry cargo ship that has run aground is being evacuated

Sakhalin rescuers on Tuesday, December 7, began to evacuate the crew of the Chinese ship Xing Yuan, which ran aground near the embankment near Primorsky Boulevard in the city of Kholmsk, reports TASS.

An evacuation request came from the captain of the bulk carrier. Previously, they could not deliver 12 Chinese sailors to the coast because of a severe storm. When the weather improved, the staff Ministry of Emergency Situations pulled a cable attached to the ship with the help of a car. On it, the team members go down to the shore, where they are met by rescuers.

All crew members who descend from the ship ashore wear personal protective suits. Chinese citizens will be sent for isolation and tested for COVID-19.

The divers began to survey the ship’s hull. Safety measures are being taken in the event of a possible fuel spill.

Earlier it was reported that the bulk carrier ran aground on the Kholmsk embankment on December 6. Initially, the crew was not going to leave the ship, but after a day, the sailors still decided to go ashore.
