21 Killed in Ferry Sinking

May 15, 2006

The Phillippine Star reported that 21 bodies have been recovered so far after a small outrigger ferry sailing from Masbate sank in rough waters caused by winds spawned by Typhoon Caloy. More than 10,000 passengers were also stranded as air and ferry services were suspended. The Coast Guard said 18 other passengers of the motorboat Mae An had been rescued since May 12, when it capsized off Masbate after ignoring a general warning from authorities stopping all small vessels from sailing as the storm approached.
