South Korea has requested Brazil and Uruguay to aid in the search and rescue, the official said asking not to be identified.

The very large ore carrier (VLOC) Stellar Daisy owned and operated by South Korea’s Polaris Shipping based in Busan was sailing from Brazil to China carrying iron ore when it sent a distress signal to the ship operator Friday, Yonhap said.

A message last received on Friday by Polaris from a crewmember said the ship was taking in water on the port side and was listing rapidly, Yonhap said.
