Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “4 crew members found alive aboard a capsized cargo ship near Georgia”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Coast Guard rescuers found four South Korean crew members trapped inside a massive cargo ship, by rappelling down the side and drilling a hole through the hull to contact them on Monday.

Heflin said the rescue team is communicating with the trapped sailors through the hole they drilled, but getting them out remains quite challenging.

The capsizing of the Golden Ray in Georgia's St. Simons Sound early Sunday caused fires and smoke, and while the flames are now apparently out, the huge ship is listing at roughly 90 degrees, with more than 4,000 vehicles inside it.

A South Korea foreign ministry statement said Monday that the crew members were alive and isolated inside an engine room. It said 10 South Koreans and 13 Filipinos had been on board, along with a U.S. harbor pilot, when the ship began tilting over.
