Experienced seaman among missing in Cebu ship sinking, wife survives

A cluster of life rafts floate near the cargo ship Sulpicio Express Siete with its damaged bow a day after it collided with a passenger ferry off the waters of Talisay city, Cebu province in central Philippines, Saturday Aug. 17, 2013. Divers combed through a sunken ferry Saturday to retrieve the bodies of more than 200 people still missing from an overnight collision with a cargo vessel near the central Philippine port of Cebu that sent passengers jumping into the ocean and leaving many others trapped. At least 28 were confirmed dead and hundreds rescued. The captain of the ferry MV Thomas Aquinas, which was approaching the port late Friday, ordered the ship abandoned when it began listing and then sank just minutes after collision with the MV Sulpicio Express, coast guard deputy chief Rear Adm. Luis Tuason said. AP

As an experienced seaman, Reynaldo Galve, 36, was expected to know the drill when sea accidents happened. That his wife, who is being treated for head wounds in a hospital in Cebu, survived while he remains missing is a mystery to Galve’s relatives.
