Locals of a small island in southern part of South China sea were startled to find a big 60,000-ton tanker, stranded on island’s coast, in the morning Jan 16. Local fishermen are afraid even to approach mysterious ship. The mystery is, tanker’s looking like she’s abandoned, no crew visible, no radio talks, no signs of life when locals approached her on their boats – dead ship and nobody on board. Nobody knows where did she come from, and how. Most probably, she drifted into island’s shallows driven by recent storm. Nobody yet claimed tanker and explained to locals, what’s all about. Tanker doesn’t look like rusty bucket, she’s in comparatively good condition, abandoned for days or weeks maybe, not months or years.
