CEBU CITY—(UPDATE) A passenger vessel and a cargo ship collided shortly before 6 a.m. Thursday in the waters off Lawis Ledge in Talisay City, southern Cebu.

But no one was hurt when MV Superferry 2 hit the starboard quarter of the MV General Romulo, a cargo vessel, at 5:50 a.m., said Cebu Coast Guard Station commander Rolando Punzalan.


The MV Superferry 2 came from Nasipit in Agusan del Norte while the MV General Romulo came from Cagayan de Oro City. Both vessels were heading for Cebu City port.

Punzalan said MV General Romulo of NMC Container Lines dropped anchor in the area as its hull and cargo area were damaged.


Superferry 2 was able to dock at Pier 5 at 7:30 a.m., he added.

Punzalan said the two vessels were required to submit a marine protest while Maritime Industry Authority would inspect the sea worthiness of the two ships.
