Vessel sinks in Leyte Gulf
A cargo vessel carrying a dump truck sank at the Dinagat Islands south of Leyte Gulf on Friday.
In the report for the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC), the dump truck was not positioned well, which caused the vessel to sink.
The truck’s roof was destroyed and water came in as the truck slowly sank.
The Philippine Coast Guard is looking at a possible gas leak of the vessel so as it would not cause any damage on the island. (Judie Anne Abejero)
