Samho dream partially manned again
The "Samho Dream" had been deserted as the remaining seven Korean crew including the captain were also taken off the board after the ship ran out of fuel and fresh water. Having left abandoned at anchorage for a week, the "Samho Dream" now has four of the Korean crew back on board as their salaries, along with those of others, have been credited to their accounts. The Master said the four engineers agreed to go back to the ship after their families confirmed that their pending salaries for March and April were credited to their accounts.
11 crew members in hospital
11 crew members from the "Samho Dream" were taken to the clinic at Dry Docks in Dubai late on May 19, 2011, night after suffering from diarrhea for three days. Nine of them were given medication and sent back to the ship later. However, two whose condition was worse were still kept at the clinic. Both have to be taken to a local hospital. But on May 20 they were waiting for the agent to get the immigration clearance for that. The vessel was supplied with 70 bunkers of diesel oil on May 19 by the agent while the thg "Husky", which was passing by, also donated food items to them after seeing the banners on which the crew wrote their plight.Upload News
