The series of sea tragedies in the Philippines may not yet be over after all. M/V Starlite Navigator, a roll-on roll-off ferry, suddenly stopped on its way from Batangas City to Calapan City in Mindoro. Still fresh from the sinking of M/V Baleno 9 last December 24, around 222 passengers were frightened when they got stranded and lights went off the vessel. M/V Starlite left Batangas City port around 5pm, December 30 and after 1 hour the vessel encountered mechanical problem. The vessel only asked for help around 8pm. M/V Starlite was towed by the Philippine Coast Guard to Calapan City port.
