TOKYO, Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese Consulate General in Fukuoka confirmed Wednesday that a Cambodian ship with 13 Chinese sailors aboard anchored in the waters off Fukuoka the day morning as it lost power on Tuesday.

The vessel registered in Cambodia left Shanghai on Jan. 5 for Japan's Osaka for transporting steel. Crew members found the ship' s propeller was out of work on Jan. 8 and the ship has flew into waters near Fukuoka Wednesday morning.

All 14 crew members, including 13 Chinese and a Myanmar national, are in good conditions, the consulate said.

Now, the ship has anchored in the waters and is waiting for rescue from Japanese side.
