THREE crewmembers of a Chinese box ship have been killed and another five missing in a collision involving another container vessel managed by a German company near the Yangtze River estuary off Shanghai late Sunday.

According to information released by Shanghai Maritime Safety Bureau, 16 crewmembers of the Xin Qi Sheng 69 jumped overboard after the collision with the 2013-built 1,7,14-TEU containership Oceana, which earlier suffered an engine failure.



Eight crewmembers on board the Xin Qi Sheng 69, which later sank, were rescued from the river and a search operation was mounted for the other five missing men.



The Oceana is operated by German company Leonhardt & Blumberg Shipmanagement and Xin Qi Sheng 69 is owned by Xiamen Qisheng Shipping, reports Singapore's Splash 247.
