           Monday marked the fourth anniversary of the Selendang Ayu shipping accident in the Aleutian Islands. Six crew members died while being rescued when a Coast Guard helicopter crashed after the 738-foot freighter went ashore and spilled 60-thousand tons of soybeans and over 340-thousand gallons of heavy fuel oil. But what has been done to increase shipping safety in the region since then? One group says not enough. KUCB’s Anne Hillman has more.
