A fishing boat almost sank when it collided with a large passenger vessel off the seawaters of Cordova town near Pungaton reef yesterday dawn.
The fishermen were about to pull up their net when the MV Princess of the Earth struck the boat around 5:20 a.m.
Fisherman Rogelio Años, 57, said he yelled at the passengers while his partner Marvin Dante pushed the ship away.
?I shouted to the passengers that Cebu was in the other direction. I believe the ship lost its way,? Años said.
Their nets and fishing light worth P8,000 were destroyed. Años said they won?t file charges against the shipping company but would ask to be paid for their damaged equipment. /CORRESPONDENT GABRIEL BONJOC
