Team of four Chinese rescuers boarded tanker SANCHI at 0837 Beijing time Jan 13, they’ve been lifted to stern deck by a crane of offshore supply tug SHEN QIAN HAO (IMO 9648570), deployed in SANCHI rescue operation. They found bodies of two dead crew on lifeboat deck, they moved further and entered bridge, which was empty of people or bodies. Team wasn’t able to go deeper into superstructure, living quarters and engine room, because of too high temperature. At 0903 they returned to SHEN QIAN HAO , taking bodies of perished seamen with them. Wind in the area is around 10 met/sec, waves 2 meters high. Some 9 or more vessels, deployed in rescue operation, are positioned near tanker. Photos of this first boarding of Iranian tanker remind a horror movie.
