Search and Rescue Remains Priority for Ferry Owner

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Sulpicio Lines Incorporated, owner of the ill-fated passenger vessel, M/V Princess of the Stars, said they are trying to hasten rescue operations and assistance to the victims. However, the shipping firm explained that its main concern at the moment is the recovery of casualties and the rescue of survivors.
The company has deployed m/v Cebu Princess and hired two Malaysian tugboats to assist in the rescue operations. But the inclement weather has delayed the rescue operation.
Despite this, families were assured that rescue is still underway.
