Six people are missing at sea in Hong Kong, after two boats collided on Thursday night, in dense fog...

A boat carrying construction waste hit another vessel and sank not far from Stanley, on the south side of Hong Kong Island.

11 crew members onboard were thrown into the water after the collision.

Five were rescued, but six remain missing, after an overnight search was hampered by low visibility.

Officials are investigating the cause of the crash.

It's latest accident on the city's busy waterways...

Last October, a ferry collision killed 39 people, in the city's worst maritime disaster in decades.

And earlier this month, a crash occurred between a passenger ferry and a barge, in which more than 30 people were injured.

We'll have the latest on that rescue and investigation as we receive it.
