I listened this morning to the latest reincarnation of the morning show was once on for nearly seven years, my compare Julius and another co-anchor were talking to a representative of a manpower company that supplied sailors to a shipping company based in Greece whose vessel sank in the south Atlantic off South Africa,

He  tried to gentle in saying that even tough the SA Navy and Coast Guard has called of the search for survivors from the Angelous T, the owners of the vessel were still attempting to seek out survivors.

The area of the world where the ship went down is not known to be kind to seafarers who happen to be in the rough seas. subfreezing weather overnight – it is after-all the winter season down there. And also rough currents from three oceans sweep much of vessels that are ill-fated enough to sink there in all directions.

6 Filipino sea-men were pulled from the seas but other life rafts – were empty.

Lets all hope and pray something of a miracle happens and and if possible more or all are rescued. But the prognosis does not look too good.

report from the ABS-CBN website here:

" Search continues for 18 missing Pinoy sailors, others
A tugboat remained at sea to look for 26 missing crewmen of a Greek vessel that sank off the coast of Port Elizabeth in South Africa last week, ABS-CBN News learned Monday. Eighteen of the 26 missing sailors are Filipinos.
