Ship runs aground off Cebu
MANILA, Philippines -- A ship ran aground off the waters in Talisay, Cebu early morning on Saturday.
Authorities said the ship operated by Trans-Asia Shipping Lines ran aground at Lawis Ledge at 5:10 a.m.
The MV Trans-Asia 9, which was carrying 364 passengers and 72 crew members, came from Cagayan De Oro City and was bound for Cebu City.
Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) spokesperson Lt. Commander Armand Balilo suspects the vessel ran aground due to low tide and miscalculation.
Balilo said all passengers and crew members were rescued at around 9:35 a.m. No one was reported injured in the incident.
The ship was already brought to Cebu City where it will be investigated. -- Reports from June Perez and Johnson Manabat, dzMM
