15 sailors rescued

SHANGHAI maritime rescuers saved 15 sailors from a tilting cargo ship at the mouth of the Yangtze River last night. The city's maritime rescue center received distress calls around 7:50pm from the ship as it tilted about 10 degrees to port. Four rescue boats were dispatched and by 9:35pm, all the crew on the cargo ship had been brought to safety, the maritime officials said. The 98-meter-long ship, carrying 4,725 tons of iron ore, came from a port in neighboring Jiangsu Province, the officials said. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
