Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 17) — A boat carrying 11 people and eight drums of diesel capsized Saturday in Siquijor, authorities said.

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) rescued all crew and passengers onboard and recovered the drums of diesel, which are now in Barangay Cangmunag in San Juan town for safekeeping. The boat also carried 22 empty fuel drums.

The PCG said it provided all rescued individuals with medical assistance and are now in good physical condition.

The PCG is still monitoring the capsized boat until its retrieval to prevent oil spills.
