ANOTHER PINOY CREW FROM MISSING CATTLE SHIP FOUND ALIVE
The Japanese Coast Guard rescued another Filipino crewmember to days since the Panamanian-flagged vessel Gulf Livestock 1 issued a distress call from the East China Sea.
In a bulletin issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs, it said that the Filipino sailor was found alive and alone in a life raft.
“He is conscious and able to walk. The DFA is withholding the identity of the rescued Filipino seafarer pending his consent to publish his name,” it said.
The department also reported that the unidentified person found on Friday morning had been confirmed as deceased by a doctor.
However, the person’s identity could not be confirmed due to the condition of the remains, it said.
