Commander Joe Luviz Mercurio, chief of PCG-Northern Negros Occidental, said in an interview that personnel of Coast Guard Station (CGS)-Bredco Port and Maritime Safety Services Command are conducting a detailed inspection of the vessel to determine the cause of the distress.

โ€œThey are looking at the cause of the mechanical trouble and other relevant details to finalize our report,โ€ he added.

Mercurio said that after the CGS-Bredco Port received the distress call at 1:15 p.m., they contacted a tug boat operator, which dispatched two boats to rescue and tow M/V Weesam Express 6, which arrived in Bacolod around 3:30 p.m.

He added that the Coast Guard District Western Visayas also deployed a vessel, the BRP Kalanggaman, to escort the towing operation to ensure the safety and security of the passengers. (PNA)
