Around 5:00 am this morning Marine Police were called to assist a 40 foot mainland sand barge as it was foundering on rocks near Tai Long Wan. This was apparently caused by high waves and strong winds.

The boat was beginning to sink and was out of control. Marine Police  rescued the  three crew members, who were taken to the police base in Sai Kung. There were no injuries. The current position and condition of the barge has not been reported.
