A cargo boat slammed into a small fishing boat in Manila Bay, causing the fishing boat to sink instantly and leaving one of its 23 crew members dead and 10 others missing, Philippine authorities said Thursday.
“The incident happened late Wednesday off Cavite province, south of Manila,” said coast guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Armand Balilo. “Searchers found off the body of one member of the fishing boat's crew.”
Ten crew members were missing, while the other 12 were rescued by another fishing vessel, he added.
