Grounded Ship

No, they’re not towing the ship to shore. The fishermen are hauling in their catch for the day, oblivious of the copra-carrying ship that ran aground near the shores of Barangay Sta. Filomena in Iligan City. The M/V Golden Mercury, originally anchored farther in deeper water near a coconut oil mill, was pushed closer to the shore by Typhoon Pablo’s strong winds on Tuesday, 4 December 2012.
