Rescue crews in Malta rescued three seafarers after their vessel split in two in the western Mediterranean Sea on Wednesday.
The Armed Forces of Malta was alerted late Wednesday night that the 89-meter Lady Sandra, an inland tanker, had split in two in rough weather.
Reporting indicates that the vessel departed Istanbul, Turkey on February 6 and no oil has spilled, indicating the ship was unladen at the time.

Both halves of the vessel are believed to be still afloat.
