Two vessels and a motor boat brought the passengers safely to the port of Cebu City at 11 PM. The rescue teams said that it took them hours to transport the passengers because of the shallow waters where the vessel was aground.

Weessam’s Marketing Manager said that they will issue an official statement on the incident when Capt. Caroro submits his report to MARINA. Weesam assured that the missed flights of the passengers will be rebooked and they will pay for the charges. They also provided hotel accommodations.
