The Jin Ocean loaded with 60,000 tons of coal contacted the South China Sea Rescue Bureau who deployed the rescue craft No. 116.

The 36 foot fishing vessel Ice Maiden capsized while hauling in a net full of salmon near the entrance of Galena Bay, Alaska. The 4 crew on board were able to escape to the skiff as the Ice Maiden sank. The owner contacted salvagers to raise the fishing vessel as the Ice Madien was 45 feet below the surface. However, when the salvager attempted to raise the fishing vessel, a piece of equipment failed causing the Ice Maiden to fall into deeper water. The Ice Maiden rests in 180 feet of water. Some diesel fuel is leaking from the Ice Maiden, but salvagers are conducting clean up operations. No reports of injuries.
