Mangalore, July 18 (ANI): Indian Coast Guard rescued 18 crew members of a China bound ship off Mangalore on Friday.

The cargo ship, 'Asian Forest', carrying 13,600 tons of iron ore, lay tilted 20 degrees about 15 nautical miles in the Arabian Sea soon after it had left Mangalore port.

The ship, with an all Chinese crew, sent distress signals after it developed technical snag in choppy waters.

Reports said the China registered ship had developed the same snag earlier and was repaired before starting on the journey afresh. (ANI)
