RESCUE workers are trying to reach a burning blaze after a crash in a region famous for weird paranormal activity.
MYSTERY continues to surround exactly what caused a ship to collide with a tanker carrying one million barrels of oil in the East China Sea in a region that has been described as The Dragon’s Triangle.
The fate of 31 crew members is unknown after a tanker carrying enormous amounts of oil collided with a freight ship over the weekend, sparking a huge fire which engulfed the vessel and “spewed” cargo into the ocean. It has been burning ever since.
Now, concern over the collision that took place in an area also described as the “Pacific Bermuda Triangle” is growing as rescue ships attempt to reach the burning tanker but are hampered by toxic clouds from burning oil.
The size of the oil spill off the coast of Shanghai is unknown but worries of an environmental disaster are growing with fears the ship is in danger of exploding and would likely sink, sending 136,000 tonnes of oil into open water.
The location of the mysterious site, sometimes considered a paranormal location, is directly underneath an area of sub-sea volcanoes. Some have called it a “vile vortex”; an area where the “pull of the planet’s electromagnetic waves is stronger than anywhere else”.
The cause of the crash between Hong Kong’s bulk freight ship the CF Crystal and The Sanchi in the East China Sea is unknown.
US navy aircraft scanned 3600 nautical miles surrounding the crash site, looking for the missing mariners, but none were located.
The body of one missing crew member from The Sanchi has been found but more than 30 others remain missing. The CF Crystal suffered limited damage and its 21 crew members were rescued.
The Sanchi was heading north, sailing from Iran to a port in South Korea, while the CF Crystal, carrying grain from the US, was heading south. The collision occurred at about 8pm on January 6, 300km east of China’s coast, off Shanghai.
A major rescue effort is under way but thick clouds of smoke billowing out of Panamanian ship The Sanchi and bad weather including strong seas and winds are hampering efforts to assess the damage and search for the missing crew….
