A Chinese fisherman was seriously injured after the fishing boat he was on was sunk Friday by a Bahamas-registered container ship in waters between the Chinese mainland and southern island province of Hainan, transport authorities said.
The accident occurred at 7:35 a.m. on the Qiongzhou Strait, when the container ship "EAGLE SKY" hit the fishing boat registered in Beihai, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, said a spokesman with the South China Sea Rescue Bureau under the Ministry of Transport.
Eight crew members onboard the fishing boat were rescued by the foreign ship.
The injured, who suffered brain hemorrhage, was in a stable condition after treatment, the spokesman said.
Rescuers said it was foggy when the collision occurred. The cause of the accident is being investigated.
