A fishing boat with Coast Guard personnel onboard tows a life boat with four Koreans and 15 Filipino crewmen from a cargo ship abandoned after it stalled in rough seas off the Philippines on Monday. Coast Guard Chief Adm. Wilfredo Tamayo said the M/V Hera had been en route to China from Papua New Guinea with a cargo of logs. The accident followed Sunday's sinking of a passenger ferry that left nine dead.Philippine Coast Guard
