A cargo vessel ran aground in waters off Cabilao Island in Loon early on Friday.

Seaman Second Class Rodel Astromo of Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Bohol said none of the crew members of the vessel was hurt, but authorities were still assessing if there were damages to the marine environment in the area.

Authorities were already working to move the stranded vessel.

“All is well. Ang pag guyod nalang ang giasikaso,” said Astromo.

According to Astromo, the vessel was headed towards the Catagbacan Port in Loon when it ran aground.

In a statement, Trans-Asia Shipping Lines clarified that they formerly owned the vessel but they sold it to a foreign company last month.

The vessel was initially mistaken to have been owned by the local shipping firm as it had its brand name written on its hull.

Authorities meanwhile were still investigating what caused the incident. (AD)
