Three More Survivors Rescued from Water Near Site of Sunken Ship

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Three more survivors were recovered from the water near the site of the sunken container ship Hai Tong #7.   The bodies of three other crewmembers were also recovered.

Rescue crews continue to search for six people still missing.

The Chinese cargo apparently went down in heavy weather July 10 during the passage of Typhoon Man-Yi. 

The ship sank about 375 miles northwest of Guam.

The Chinese-owned vessel was traveling from Papua New Guinea to China.

The Coast Guard says the ship may have sank after sailing through a typhoon with 70 mile per hour winds and 24-foot seas.

A total of 16 of the 22-person crew have been accounted for; eight of the 13 survivors are receiving medical attention in Guam.
