Tanker explodes, sinks off Virginia coast

The U.S. Coast Guard searched for survivors Sunday after a deadly marine accident in the Atlantic. The 174-metre tanker Bow Mariner exploded and sank late Saturday, 80 kilometres east of Virginia.

At least three of the 27 crew members aboard were killed, and rescue crews were searching for 18 others. Six men from the ship were rescued and taken by helicopter to hospital.

The ship was carrying 13 million litres of industrial ethanol when it sank. It’s not known how much of the ethanol was released into the ocean.
