26 rescued, 2 missing after ship sinks
by UPI

MANILA, Philippines - The search went on Tuesday for the captain and a crew member of a cargo ship that sank in the South China Sea near the Philippines.

Twenty-six other crew members were rescued, Xinhua reported.

The Panamanian-registered cargo ship Jin Shan began taking on water Sunday night and went under about 3 a.m. Monday, the state-run news agency reported. The ship had left the Solomon Islands for China's Jiangsu Province.

The 26 survivors were in small, inflatable boats when plucked from the ocean by a passing Japanese crude oil tanker. The captain and a technician had stayed on the sinking cargo ship in hopes of saving its contents, Xinhua reported.

A Philippine coast guard spokesman said a sea-and-air search had failed to turn up any sign of the two missing men or ship.

The cause of the accident had not been determined.
