The U.S. Coast Guard is on a search and rescue mission for four missing crew members of a cargo ship that completely flipped over off the shores of Georgia.

The 656-foot long vessel — which was carrying a bunch of vehicles and leaving a major port near Brunswick, GA very early Sunday AM — was said to be tipping to its left side shortly after it started moving. Eventually, it completely capsized, and the CG was dispatched.
