救援人员寻找菲律宾船难800失踪者 Rescuers Search for 800 Missing in Philippine Ferry Disaster

23 June, 2008

菲律宾海岸警卫队说,星期六在台风中翻船的渡轮上800多人当中有至少31人已经逃到岸上。

菲律宾海岸警卫队说,“星辰公主号”渡轮上的许多生还人员是靠橡皮救生艇和救生衣在海上漂流了超过24小时之后而在星期天登上岸的。

救援人员继续搜寻那艘翻船渡轮上其余800多名失踪的人。

The Philippines coast guard says at least 31 of the more than 800 people on a capsized ferry have managed to make it to shore.

The Philippine coast guard says many of the survivors from the ship, the Princess of Stars, made it ashore Sunday after drifting more than 24 hours in a rubber boat and in life jackets.

Rescuers are continuing their efforts to find the more than 800 other people who were on board the ship when it went down and remain missing.
