Lost Ship

Rescue workers are searching for survivors after a ship carrying more than 80 people and a cargo of livestock sank during a storm off the north Lebanese coast. “The Panamanian-flagged Danny F II capsized 11 nautical miles off Tripoli after sending a distress signal. At least 25 survivors from the vessel - sailing from Uruguay to the Syrian port of Tartous - have been picked up, officials said. High seas, strong winds and severe rain are hampering the rescue effort. One of those saved was from the Philippines and another from Pakistan, a Lebanese rescue official said. ‘They were very scared and cold when we pulled them out of the water,’ he told AFP news agency. ‘If the sea remains calm we hope to find more survivors, but if the storm kicks up again then they have little chance of surviving for more than an hour in the water,’ he said.”
