Collision in Manila Bay

Members of the Philippine Coast Guard secure an area surrounding the half-submerged MV Palawan Pearl cargo vessel following a collision with a utility boat outside the breakwater of the Manila Bay Anchorage Area around 2 a.m. Thursday. The PCG Marine Environmental Protection Command said it had laid an oil spill boom after seeing an ‘oil sheen’ in the area.
