The last crew member to be rescued was trapped behind the glass in an engineering control room of the cargo ship.

The Coast Guard of the United States reported that managed to rescue the remaining four crew members who were trapped aboard a cargo ship that capsized off the coast of Georgia .

John Reed, captain of the Coast Guard , reported that rescued crew members are receiving medical attention.

Two of the crew members are in stable condition in the Southeast Georgia Health System in Brunswick, said Jenni Morris, a hospital spokeswoman for CNN.

The Coast Guard had been working since early Sunday to rescue the four members of the South Korean crew who were unable to get off the ship when they turned on St. Simons Sound.

The last crew member to be rescued was trapped behind the glass in an engineering control room of the cargo ship. He had not consumed fresh food and water since the ship sank, authorities said.

The size of the 656-foot ship and the fact that it has airtight doors, several compartments and no electricity running complicated the rescue, said first-class non-commissioned officer Luke Clayton.

A rescue team contacted the trapped crew members on Monday morning, Coast Guard Lt. Phillip VanderWeit said earlier in the day.

A team heard the blows of the propeller shaft area during the night, he said. Rescuers were left by helicopter and drilled a small hole in the ship to communicate with the crew members, VanderWeit said.

According to MarineTraffic.com – a page that monitors global maritime traffic – the Golden Ray sailed from Georgia to Baltimore.

The ship carries a flag of the Marshall Islands and was carrying more than 4,000 cars of the Hyundai and Kia Motors brands when it capsized, according to the Reuters news agency.
