Passengers from a sinking passenger ship are safe today, thanks to a German box ship"s crew that rescued 75 survivors off Tanzania.

But a crewman was killed when he became trapped between the two ships during last night"s rescue. Despite high waves, the box ship"s crew rescued four children, 11 women, 32 men and 28 crew.

Dorian, of 1,524teu, was nearby when it received Ile D'Anjouan"s distress calls last night, a spokesman from Hamburg"s Komrowski shipping company told.

The Liberia-flagged box ship"s crew determined with the International Maritime Bureau in London that the call was not a ploy by pirates in the area, then went to the passengers" aid. Dorian was about 20 miles east of Zanzibar when it changed course and reached the casualty scene.

?It"s noteworthy that the MS Dorian was outside the pirate risk area on its way to Zanzibar, while the position of the sinking passenger ship was in the "dangerous" zone,? said the Komrowski spokesman, who added that a water leak was the likely cause of the sinking.
