There's some video in this link:
Junk Sunk - Princess Taiping Hit by Ship |

Also refers to the ship that hit the taiping changing course, fleeing the scene, and not responding to a Mayday. I have a feeling that captain and crew may not see the ocean again for a good long time.

The responsibility comes down to the captain and the mate on watch. Not the entire crew.

Life begins where land ends.
