ALL FOUR CREW MEMBERS TRAPPED INSIDE THE CARGO SHIP THAT CAPSIZED OFF THE COAST OF GEORGIA HAVE BEEN

The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued the last of the four crew members who had been trapped inside a cargo ship that capsized two days ago in waters off the U.S. state of Georgia.
The ship is managed by the South Korean firm Hyundai Glovis, and it was carrying more than 4-thousand vehicles.
For more on this we have our Hong Yoo on the line.
Yoo, what final details are we learning from the rescue efforts?
Connyoung, like you said, all four South Koreans who were trapped inside the ship, called Golden Ray, have now been rescued.
They were the last of 24 people who were on the ship at the time of the incident, and everyone is now safe.
In addition to them, the crew included 6 South Koreans, 13 Filipinos and the ship's American pilot.
The U.S. Coast Guard said they extracted three of the remaining four on Monday afternoon from the propeller shaft room near the ship's stern.
But one of the four was in a different area, and so another plan was needed to get him.
A fire had impeded the rescue process at first, but it was put out Monday morning, allowing the Coast Guard to drill through the ship's hull to find the missing four.
Then the rescuers rappelled down from a helicopter into the hull and found the first three safe.
South Korea's Consul General of Atlanta was at the scene and said in a briefing after the initial rescue... that by talking with the first three... they were able to indirectly verify that the other man was still alive.
He was rescued later in the day, at around 6 PM, from behind glass in the ship's engineering compartment where he was trapped.
All four rescued are in good condition and being examined in hospital.
The Golden Ray had left the Port of Brunswick early Sunday, headed for Baltimore, and just about a kilometer and a half from the coast it started listing heavily.
It's not clear why it tilted over, but the authorities are investigating.
That's all we have for now, Connyoung. Back to you.
