A cargo ship was moored in Discovery Bay after its crew battled to keep the vessel from running aground as Typhoon Hato swept through Hong Kong on Wednesday, August 23.
Residents of the Lantau Island community shared accounts on social media of some of the crew abandoning ship before the vessel was successfully moored.
Sue Thomas, who shot this video, said it took three attempts to get all of the crew safely off the ship. This video shows crew members in life jackets dropping off the back of the ship. Credit: YouTube/Sue Thomas via Storyful
