A passenger ferry seeking shelter from a strong typhoon capsized Sunday night in Manila Bay, Philippines.
The ferry, name Super Shuttle 7, reportedly sank at around 8 p.m. Sunday night and was not carrying any passengers at the time. All 15 crewmembers were eventually rescued after spending as much as two hours in the water. One crewmember, a security officer, was not rescued until around midnight when he was found clinging to a piece of plywood, according to local reports.
Typhoon Kalmaegi, which is locally named Luis, slammed into the Philippine northern region on Sunday, cutting power and communications lines and forcing people to flee to higher ground, national disaster agency officials said.
