Seven Chinese crew members were rescued after their fishing vessel caught fire and sunk at 18 NM Southeast off Mouligi Island, Mapun in Tawi-Tawi, August 13, 2014.

Coast Guard Station (CGS) Mapun disclosed that a certain Jonathan Tiblan, an employee of Municipal Hospital in Mapun, reported that he received a radio call from Capt. Cipriano Enoy, skipper of F/B King & Queen that a Chinese fishing vessel was on fire and eventually sunk.

F/B King & Queen was plying the vicinity and successfully rescued all seven Chinese crew, who were all in good physical condition.
 

Captain Enoy cannot get further information from the Chinese crew because they can't speak and understand English.
 

F/B King and Queen with all seven rescued Chinese crew is currently on its way to Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
