    BEIJING, March 23 (Xinhua) -- One Chinese sailor is missing after two ships ran into each other in the mouth of the Pearl River, according to the Rescue and Salvage Bureau of the Ministry of Communications.

    At 9:24 a.m. on Thursday, a Chinese cargo ship, YOU SHUN, carrying two tons of coal clashed with a Panamanian-registered ship, CANGXHIN. Water poured into the engine room.

    There were 30 sailors aboard YOU SHUN. One was missing and another sailor was injured after an armored plate struck his legs in the engine room legs.

    The rescue bureau of the South China Sea sent two high-powered ships for the rescue operation, which is still continuing.

    The wounded sailor was taken to hospital while the 28 other sailors were still on board as they were not willing to leave. Enditem
