Sources with the Jieyang Frontier Guard said it received a distress call at 5:33 AM. A Chinese ship, the Haikou Jianhuashan II, had been hit by another ship, the Samho Family, registered in the ROK.


The frontier guard immediately organized a rescue operation. They found the capsized Chinese ship and the 11 crew members who were drifting on a life boat at about 6:50 AM.
