Dramatic images of the Hong Kong-flagged bulk carrier MV Ocean Breeze which ran aground yesterday on Llo-Lleo’s beach, near the port of San Antonio, Chile. Chilean Navy helicopters rescued the crew of 24 yesterday, most of them Filipino nationals. Maritime Governor, Osvaldo Castro told reporters the anchor chain broke away (started to drag) and the ship began to ride the wind and waves toward the leeward shore.
The vessel carries a cargo of wheat and soy beans. Images submitted to us by gCaptain contributor, Captain Eric Omar RodrÃguez Aracena.
