A scene of rescuing crew members

While steaming some 700km west of Guam on January 20, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. operated coal carrier C. S. Sunshine rescued all 24 Chinese crew members of a disabled freighter January 20.

At 8:15 a.m. (local time) on January 20, the Panama-registered C.S. Sunshine, which departed Newcastle, Australia, bound for Tsuruga, Fukui Prefecture, Japan, received a distress signal from a Panama-flagged freighter that had lost power. The 46,700 MT, 228.4m C.S. Sunshine, manned with two Japanese and 19 Filipino crew, immediately altered course and made for the distressed vessel at all possible speed.

All 24 Chinese crew members aboard the disabled vessel were successfully rescued by 3:40 p.m. The rescued crew members were then transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard on January 22.
