Shanghai allows emergency anchoring for sick crew member

22 January 2014
An ocean vessel registered in Liberia was allowed to anchor in Shanghai as an emergency due to one of its crew members falling sick, suspected to be appendicitis. ‘Xiaofeng’ was scheduled to reach Waigaoqiao in the afternoon of 15 January, but had to apply via its agent to anchor at the nearest Wusong Anchorage.

The local border inspection agency dispatched a patrol boat and a tug with immigration officers on board and allowed the sick crew member to land before all the necessary documentation for the vessel and crew was completed. The patient arrived in a local hospital in good time and his condition was described as being under control.
