A worker plunged into the sea and tried to recover two empty containers that fell into the water off Kwai Chung No5 container terminal, at noon yesterday. He retrieved one but the other sank. Marine police and fire service vessels arrived at the scene, but the worker swam back to shore unhurt. Workers later used machinery to recover the second container.
