Philippine Ferry Sinks After Collision

Monday, April 17, 2000
A Philippine inter-island ferry slammed into a fish corral at sea early on Monday, disabling its propeller. All 137 people aboard were rescued, the coastguard said. It is the second sea mishap to occur in the Philippines in five days, after at least 138 people drowned and 70 rescued on Wednesday when an overloaded ferry capsized off Jolo island in the southern Philippines.

In the latest incident, a sister ship tried to tow the 260-ton Viva Penafrancia to port in nearby Batangas city after its passengers and crew were transferred to a passing vessel, but the distressed ferry listed and sank with its cargo of motor vehicles.
