Fuel line to be severed on Golden Ray

Salvage crews have been preparing sever the fuel line on the capsized wreck of car carrier Golden Ray in St Simon’s Sound, Brunswick, Georgia, USA.

It has been estimated by the salvors that 44,000 gallons of fuel could still be remaining inside the vessel, along with hundreds of vehicles.

Before each of the sections gets hauled off by barges, they are being wrapped in high-strength netting to help contain the materials, including the vehicles.

Responders conduct daily flights over the site of the wreck to ensure their booms are containing the pollution.
