The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for four missing crew members of a cargo ship that capsized and caught fire early Sunday morning near Brunswick, Georgia.

At approximately 2 a.m. ET, Coast Guard Sector Charleston was alerted that motor vessel Golden Ray had capsized in St. Simons Sound, a bay in Brunswick, according to a press release from the Coast Guard.

Multiple Coast Guard resources were deployed to the scene, and 20 people were safely removed, the press release stated. Four remained missing as of 11 a.m. ET.

Evacuations of the Golden Ray’s crew continue. All vessel traffic in the Port of Brunswick is currently suspended unless approved by the @USCG Captain of the Port.

The ship, which the Coast Guard described as “on fire” and could be seen in photos generating smoke, has a crew of 24 people — 23 crew members and one pilot. The Golden Ray is 656-feet-long and 106-feet-wide.

During a press conference Sunday afternoon, officials said rescue efforts underway, but it was determined going inside the ship to rescue the remaining four people was too risky. Authorities said they would resume their attempts to enter the ship and search for the four missing people once the vessel was stabilized.

Several local agencies were assisting the Coast Guard in its search for the missing crew members, including the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Moran Towing, SeaTow, Brunswick Bar Pilots Association, and the Glynn County Fire Department.

 

“We greatly appreciate the immediate response of the US Coast Guard, who are leading the search and rescue,” Griffith V. Lynch, executive director of the Georgia Ports Authority, said.

The ship had just departed Colonels Island Terminal when it capsized.

More Violence Against NYC Cops as Fight Breaks Out When Officers Arrive To Help at Fire

It should go without saying that the ultimate goal of law enforcement is to protect and save lives. Unfortunately, it still has to be said.

The New York Police Department is all too familiar with violence, resistance and disrespect in general, and Tuesday afternoon was no different.

After a fire broke out in a sixth floor apartment in the Bronx, residents and neighbors were quick to flee and gather around to observe, according to WNBC.

More than 100 firefighters were called to the scene, and naturally, the crowd had the potential to be obstructive and dangerous.

As the fire crew was working to quench the flames, police officers attempted to help control the crowd that was preventing safe evacuation from the burning building.

It didn’t go too well.

As the crowd refused to move, the altercation soon devolved into a brawl, during which a woman ripped off an officer’s body camera and another person chucked a carton of milk at the cops.

The body-cam snatcher was quickly arrested and faced charges including harassment, assault and grand larceny. The milk thrower ran off immediately.

Fortunately, none of the tenants inside the buildings were injured in the fire, as they were able to leave quickly via the fire escape. Five families were displaced, however.

Two deputies and five firefighters suffered minor injuries due to smoke inhalation, but no serious injuries came of the fight.

This is yet another example of police, and the NYPD specifically, dealing with resistance while trying to accomplish basic public safety tasks.

In late August, New York officers were caught on video trying to arrest a resisting suspect with a hostile crowd closing in. Before that, a series of water attacks went viral.

These attacks and resistance make it much more difficult for the police to do their job, which is to protect the community that they share with these people.

Unfortunately, the situation doesn’t seem to be getting any better, as the New York City leadership refuses to step in and support its law enforcement officers.
