The remaining 33 crew members were successfully recovered from their life rafts, work boats and skiff by the "Fong Seong 888". The "American Eagle"'s sister ship, "American Victory", was en route and expected to arrive in three days to relieve the "Fong Seong 888". Report with photos and video: www.uscgnews.com/...
