Rescued Chinese crewman critical
(03-18 12:26)

One Chinese crew member was in a critical condition and eight others were missing after two cargo ships collided at the mouth of Tokyo Bay early today, Japan's coastguard said.
The Panamanian-flagged Beagle III, a 12,630-ton vessel carrying steel coil, sank after colliding with the South Korean-registered Pegasus Prime in the Uraga waterway. The accident happened at about 3:10 am local time.
Of the 20 Chinese crew aboard Beagle III, “twelve have been rescued, but one of them is in a state of cardio-respiratory arrest,'' said a coastguard official, adding that eight others were still missing.
Rescue personnel in Japan frequently use the term cardio-respiratory arrest before doctors officially pronounce death.—AFP
