Cosco Shenzhen-operated bulker M/V Peng Yan in collision in China's Zhoushan archipelago in the Yangtze river-mouth with Tianjin Tianhui Shipping operated bulker M/V Hui Rong and sank within 15 minutes of the collision with 9 drowned and 8 missing. 12 seafarers picked up, including 1 who had been in the water for 6 hours. These men are reported to be in a stable condition at hospitals in Shanghai. Zhejiang Maritime Safety Bureau has attributed collision to combination of heavy traffic, strong winds and fog. The archipelago lies in the Yangtze river-mouth, close to several busy ports, in the middle of N-S routes and is one of China's major fishing grounds. A day after the collision, a fishing boat collided and sank, but its crew of 12 rescued.
