Coast Guard Confirms 4 Missing Crew Members On Overturned Cargo Ship Off Georgia Coast are Alive

Rescuers made contact Monday with four crew members inside a stricken cargo ship after the massive vessel overturned and caught fire on Sunday near a major port on the Georgia coast.

Officials are currently working to get the crew members safely out of the massive vessel.

The US Coast Guard confirmed the missing crew were communicating with officials, but conditions inside the ship are unknown.

Response crews drilled a hole in the hull of the ship to deliver supplies.

The Coast Guard pulled 20 crew members to safety, but at one point the rescue efforts were delayed as smoke, flames and unstable cargo made it too risky to go deeper inside the ship.
