The US Coast Guard has rescued four crew members who have been trapped since Sunday when a cargo ship capsized off the coast of the state of Georgia.

The Golden Ray, which was carrying thousands of vehicles, overturned, after leaving the port of Brunswick.

Authorities however managed to save 20 of the crew before fire forced them back.

Three of the men were freed yesterday afternoon before the last was safely rescued several hours later.

The local coastguard says it will now focus on environmental protection and removing the capsized vessel.
