Sinking ship on live TV

Yesterday, the slow sinking of the Philippine-registered cargo ship Eastern Challenger in Tokyo Bay was broadcast live on Japanese TV [link to video clip on BBC News].


All crew members were safely rescued from the 6,000-ton ship, which began taking on water after colliding with the Tsugaru-maru, a 500-ton Japanese vessel, in thick fog at 5:20 a.m.
