Crew Errors Caused Deadly Collision Off China’s Coast
Errors by both crews led to the collision of two vessels off China’s east coast in January that killed 32 seamen, according to a joint report viewed by Caixin.
The Panama-registered oil tanker Sanchi, en route from Iran to South Korea, collided with the Hong Kong-flagged CF Crystal about 160 nautical miles (184 miles) east of the Yangtze River estuary at 7:50 p.m. on Jan. 6 when the Sanchi caught fire, killing all 32 crew members, most of whom were Iranians.
