May the departed souls rest in peace. We are deeply mourned by the sudden demise of our son/brother/friend Md. Sajib Ali Mridha [3rd Officer]
Despite combined efforts, it has not been possible to extinguish the fire and recover the bodies due to repeated explosions and gas leaks.
The collision, between the Panama-registered Iranian oil tanker Sanchi and the Hong Kong-registered bulk freighter CF Crystal, happened about 8pm on Saturday in the East China Sea, about 160 nautical miles east of the Yangtze River Delta, Xinhua said, citing a statement from China’s Ministry of Transport.
