The Indian Coast Guard rescued all 22 crew members of a product tanker taking on water in the Arabian Sea off the Indian state of Gujarat.

The crew members had abandoned ship into a liferaft, leaving the Panama-flagged MT Global King adrift and likely sinking with uncontrolled flooding.

The vessel was reported to be 93 nautical miles from Porbandar, India.

“All crew are safe and healthy,” the Indian Coast Guard said on Twitter.

Indian media is reporting the 6,694 dwt Global King was sailing from Khor Fakkan in the UAE to Karwar, India carrying 6,000 tonnes of Bitumen.
